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.

Pair of peregrine falcons set up home at Greenwich clocktower

A pair of peregrine falcons have set up home at Greenwich's landmark clocktower - but snap-happy birdspotters are being urged to keep away.

The rare birds - which are granted special legal protection - have been spied by several eager onlookers at the Royal Hill site in recent months.

And nest site monitor John Chapman from the London Peregrine Protection Partnership - a voluntary group set up top preserve the capital's creatures - confirmed they had been there since last year.

He told News Shopper: "They were there last year but they were only young birds. But they stayed there right through the winter and they're still there this year."
