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 sea eagle is Ryedale chippy's highest-flying customer

A RARE bird of prey is living the high life – thanks to an award-winning chippy.

Scotts of Helmsley is now flying as well as frying every night after a Steller’s sea eagle called Inowashi became its best customer.

The restaurant has come to the rescue of the International Centre for Birds of Prey in nearby Duncombe Park which was searching for a regular supply of fresh fish to feed Inowashi, one of its star attractions.

The bird, which now tucks into fish-without-the-chips seven days a week, is five-years-old, weighs 14lbs and has an impressive 8ft wingspan.
