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.

Council could ban bird feeding in revamped square

Published date: 30 March 2015 | Published by: Owen Evans 

PIGEON excrement is blighting a town square which has just undergone a £500,000 improvement.

Plans are now in the pipeline to ban people feeding birds in the Daniel Owen Square in Mold.

Mold Town Council is exploring ways of reducing the amount of bird droppings in the town centre square, named after Mold’s literary great.

A council meeting heard that people leaving feed for birds in the square was adding to the problem.

Town Mayor Carol Heycocks said: “The seats are covered in bird droppings.”

The square has just undergone a massive revamp which saw extensive landscaping, a raised platform to serve as an artistic hub for performers and the Daniel Owen statue moved.
