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 11 year-old boy has captured images of a rare bird while trying out a Christmas present.

Thomas Spencer went to St Brides Beach on Sunday (December 27) to get used to his new camera.

He noticed a lot of bird watchers on the beach who were trying to capture a shot of a rare grey phalarope.

The grey phalarope is seen around 200 times a year in the UK, with Birdwatch magazine recording previous sightings at Strumble Head.
