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.

AN INJURED gull has been nicknamed Steven Seagull after a lucky escape in Malvern.

Police were called at about 8.30pm on Monday, July 13, to reports of three boys attempting to lure the injured bird into a busy main road.

One of the boys was described as tall with blond hair, the second short with blond hair while the third was said to be fat and "looked like he was from The Goonies".

Although officers arrived at the scene in Pickersleigh Road, near Russell Close, too late to catch the culprits, they were able to rescue the gull and handed it to the RSPCA.

It has been nicknamed Steven Seagull (after Hollywood movie star Steven Seagal).
