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.

Emu escapes! Runaway bird Zig on the loose after disappearing from home


Zig the emu went missing from his North Wales home while his owners were out

The search is on for an emu called Zig after it escaped from its home.

The bird is one of a pair hatched from eggs which made an unusual birthday present from Lindsey Wright to her husband Peter.

Both Zig and Zag disappeared from their remote Llangywer home in North Wales on Monday while the family was out.


Although Zag showed up at a neighbour's house on Tuesday her brother is still at large and his owners are hunting for him.

Mrs Wright thinks the emus had been missing for three hours when the family discovered they were gone at about 6.30pm on Monday.

They searched all evening without success, but had more luck the following morning.
