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.

Operation Nest in peace: 24 illegal trapping sites dismantled, say CABS

The Committee Against Bird Slaughter (CABS) has said in a statment “that in the last 10 days its investigations have led to the dismantling of 24 active trapping sites on Malta and Gozo. Numerous trapping paraphernalia such as clap nets, mist nets and cage traps as well as live Greenfinches, Linnets and a Robin have been confiscated by the authorities.”

CABS added that “at least 7 trappers were filmed actively trapping or have been apprehended by the police. The men are expected to be arraigned in court soon. A video summary of the evidence filmed by CABS and the action taken by the police has been published on YouTube today.”
