As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants.

Bird lovers have joined critics who want to stop plans for fracking in the Thames Valley. The wildlife charity the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds are concerned that drilling and habitat damage involved could harm wildlife.

Licences for fracking will be up for grabs later this year - in a 350 square mile area between Kidlington, Banbury and Bicester north of Oxford. Fred spoke to Harry Huyton from the RSPB.
