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.

Residents enjoy watching chicks with bird cam

3:45pm Wednesday 7th May 2014 in News

RESIDENTS have been all of a flutter at a Worcestershire care home after a bird watching camera was set up in their court yard.

Elderly people living at Rashwood Care Home, in Wychbold, near Droitwich, have been enjoying keeping an eye on the comings and goings of the family of birds since the bird cam was installed.

Deborah Sorenson, from the care home, said the camera was similar to that of Spring Watch on BBC1.

"We are watching the camera on the library TV," she said. "When she laid the eggs we watched them hatching and now we are having great joy watching the mother feeding the birds and bringing the food to them. There are eight chicks in the nest. It's very similar to Spring Watch.
