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.

There’s nothing paltry about these rare birds

Sean Tydeman has only been in the rare-poultry breeding game for two years but already has plenty to crow about.

The Aberglasslyn man will present a selection of birds at the Rare Poultry Breeder’s Association’s annual show on Saturday.


This year marks the ninth edition of the show at Maitland Showground’s poultry pavilion and organisers expect it to be the biggest yet.

More than 650 birds were on display last year and came from as far away as north Queensland.

Mr Tydeman said he enjoyed the birds’ individual traits.

“From their looks and the variety as well as their personalities, some of them have very distinct ­personalities,” he said.
