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.

A RARE pelican native to Romania has been spotted again in the UK.

The 'lesser spotted' dalmatian pelican was first seen in Cornwall back in May.

But now, the giant grey and white bird has made its way to the Devon coastline, with bird watchers reporting sightings around Plymouth.

The first sighting was on July 9 when it was spotted in Torpoint at about 9am before another record was logged an hour later at St John's Lake in Cornwall.

Over the next two days, three people reported see the pelican - the largest of the species - hanging around Whacker Quay in Antony, Cornwall.
