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.

Rise in discovery of dead raptors in the Highlands

28 April 2014 Last updated at 15:46

Police investigating the deaths of birds and prey in Ross-shire and the Black Isle have said another two dead red kites have been found.

This brings the total of dead raptors discovered since March to 22 - 16 red kites and six buzzards.

Tests have so far confirmed that 12 of the birds were poisoned.

A reward for information leading to a prosecution has been added to by donations from RSPB Scotland, landowners, farmers and the public.
