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.

The reed beds at RSPB Saltholme provide the perfect overnight roost for starlings to form the huge flocks - or murmurations

Birdwatchers are being invited to experience the “living cloud” as flocks of starlings form across Teesside.

RSPB Saltholme , near Stockton, has organised a number of ‘Soup and Starlings’ evenings to take place at the nature reserve for visitors to witness the wildlife show.

Lydia Tague, visitor experience officer at RSPB Saltholme said: “You might have seen the spectacular starling murmurations on wildlife programmes on TV, but nothing beats seeing them in person. Wrapping up and going to see a starling murmuration is well worth the effort.
