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. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

"Crow bangers" a danger to the public

Last updated Sun 6 Apr 2014

Police in Kent are issuing warnings over the dangers of explosive bird scarers. Officers were called to Bysingwoods in Faversham following reports of gunshot. They found a number of bird scaring ropes which they say had been put in areas where children could access them.

Although not illegal, the scarers, known as "crow bangers" were paced indiscriminately, despite strict controls on how they are meant to be used.

Anyone who finds one is urged to contact police on 101
