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.

Largest breeding colony of rare sea bird calls Norfolk its home

14 July 2016 at 7:30am

Norfolk has become home to the UK's largest breeding colony of a rare sea bird.

Little terns travel from West Africa to breed on our coasts each summer.

Monitoring has discovered 169 nests on an area of beach near Sea Palling in east Norfolk.
The RSPB said chicks would be starting to find their feet and urged visitors to the area to be careful.
