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.

NAVI MUMBAI: Around 200 km south of Mumbai in the picturesque coastal town of Shrivardhan in Raigad district, a meticulous Vulture Conservation Centre is slowly but surely taking shape atop tall coconut trees. 

Forest officials of Roha taluka informed that at present there are 30 nests of white backed and long billed vulture species at their Shrivardhan centre which was started around three years back with the sole purpose of increasing the vulture population.
