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.

Britain's National Bird: How Ashbourne people can vote

PEOPLE in Ashbourne are being asked to vote for their favourite bird.

TV presenter David Lindo has launched the vote and the winner will be crowned Britain’s National Bird.

The last time the country chose its national bird was back in the 1960s when the robin won the vote.

The new vote will take place in two stages. First, people will vote from a list of 60 birds. The six most popular will go through to the finals, where a second vote will be held to determine the winner.

Everyone who votes will get a free digital copy of Britain's biggest-selling wild bird magazine ‘Bird Watching’ and be entered into a draw to win various prizes.
