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.

Norfolk Police and the RSPB have appealed for anyone with any information about the shooting of a little bustard in Norfolk last month, to come forward.

The bird was discovered dead on a road close to the village of Blofield, five miles from Norwich, on January 22nd and the RSPB and Norfolk Police were informed.

A post-mortem veterinary examination found that the bird had very recently been shot and that this had caused its death.
