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.

'Help house sparrows' - Cumbria Wildlife Trust

9:00pm Monday 7th April 2014 in News

HOUSE sparrows are in decline despite being named the top spotted bird in 2014.

Cumbria Wildlife Trust is now seeking the help of the public after the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch identified a decline in the populations of sparrows, greenfinches and starlings. The trust has said people can help boost numbers by filling feeders, cleaning bird tables, putting out water during hot spells and providing the birds with seed mixes.

It adds that the charity also benefits by people using leading online company Vine House Farm Bird Foods.
