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.

RARE BIRD SPECIES: Rare long-legged Buzzard sighted in undisclosed area of North Malta

Published on Friday, 18, April, 2014 at 18:44 in Malta News | No Comments

A rare and highly protected bird, the long-legged Buzzard, was sighted yesterday in an undisclosed area in the north of Malta. The bird roosted overnight, awaiting more favourable wind currents to continue with its journey.

The Government said that immediately upon receiving initial sighting reports, several ALE patrols were deployed around the area.

The location is also being monitored by officials from the Wild Birds Regulation Unit who are conducting foot and vehicular patrols around the area, and are in close liaison with enforcement officers as well as with teams of volunteers present on the ground.
