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.

Hen harriers tagged to better understand the threats they face

As a part of the RSPB’s Hen Harrier LIFE+ Project hen harriers have been electronically tagged enabling conservationists, and researchers to gain a better understanding of the threats these rarest and most threatened birds of prey face.

The tags transmit locations of the harriers on a regular basis, and members of the public along with scientists will be able to follow the movements of two individuals on a new website launched earlier this week. However, there will be a two week delay in the position information that will be available to the general public for security reasons.
