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 ostrich races onto highway in Zhejiang

12-26-2014 05:36 BJT

An over-two-meter high, 75 kilogram ostrich accidentally crashed into the fast lane in eastern China’s Zhejiang province Monday. An ostrich ran onto an expressway in eastern China’s Zhejiang province Monday. 
Surveillance footage captured the run-away ostrich, over 2 meters tall and weighing 75 kilograms, bursting through a toll gate. The bird then ran on the side of the road and raced with passing cars.

Police officers eventually caught up with the bird and accompanied it until it was willing to walk off the expressway.
