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.

T in the Park 2015: New blow for event organisers as campaigners claim rare birds are nesting on the site

DESPITE a star-studded line-up already being announced for Scotland's biggest music festival campaigners are determined to have it moved from the new site at Strathallan Castle.

CAMPAIGNERS have delivered a fresh blow to T in the Park bosses after claiming rare birds are now mating at the site.

A pair of ospreys sparked concerns for the festival earlier this week after being spotted just 80 years from the new venue at Strathallan Castle in Perthshire.

But Strathallan T Action Group have now claimed that an active nest is a major threat to Scotland's biggest music event, expected to attract 75,000 music fans from July 10.

The group has called for the festival to be cancelled or relocated, despite a star-studded line up including Noel Gallagher and Sam Smith already being confirmed.
