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.

Runaway bird finds sanctuary in a garden

6th August 2014

A RUNAWAY lovebird is feathering its nest in a Bethania garden where it has been adopted by a flock of sparrows. Julie Langford, owner of Isfryn, first spotted the bird, a member of the parrot family, about four weeks ago sampling some of her chickens’ feed.

“It now starts calling from the tree in my back yard about 6.30am, upon which I feed it a while little later his first meal of parrot food, it flies off until lunchtime, where it now sits on top of the bird feeder requesting more grub — which the cheeky little fellow gets. “I usually spend a while in the garden in the afternoon where we have whistling conversations.
