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.

Bird 'photobombs' railway webcam at Abergynolwyn

3 February 2016

It was a case of beak-a-boo when a bird "photobombed" a web camera mounted at a railway station in north west Wales.

A bird looking into shot at the camera in Abergynolwyn Station, in Gwynedd,It looked into the lens at Abergynolwyn Station, in Gwynedd, on the Talyllyn Railway - the world's oldest passenger-carrying narrow-gauge line.

The image shows the feathered friend peering into shot on Wednesday morning.

The phrase "photobomb" - to spoil a picture by unexpectedly appearing in shot - was added to the Collins English dictionary in 2014.
