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.

Twitchers in a flap over rare visitor

09:59Wednesday 17 February 2016

Bird watchers have been flocking to Strathclyde Park to catch sight of a rare visitor to our shores.
The Ring-billed Gull is the most common member of its species in the United States, and is now starting to travel across the Atlantic.
An adult Ring-billed Gull was spotted at Strathclyde Park and it is believed the same bird has returned this year.

It is one of only two who are known to have set up home in the Scotland, with the other found in Dingwall.
