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.

Rare kingfisher birds in Wallsend Hall grounds delight birdwatchers



The brightly-coloured kingfisher birds appeared at the Wallsend Hall grounds during regeneration work

A pair of rare birds have been turning heads after making home at a North East park.

Visitors to the Wallsend Hall grounds have being enjoying the sight of the brightly-coloured kingfishers who have made their home in the area.

Parks manager Carl McClean says the blue flashes of the kingfishers can be seen on an almost daily basis.

The birds first appeared when the parks were closed to the public during the Heritage Lottery Funded and Big Lottery Funded regeneration project in summer 2013.

They decided to stay and have remained there since the gates were re-opened in January last year.
