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.

'Long neck of the law' apprehends swan on A47 near Norwich

26 April 2017

A swan was given a "lift" by the "long neck of the law" after causing chaos during the morning rush hour.

The bird landed on the A47 near Norwich at about 07:00 BST and took a waddle through the traffic.

The swan kept Norfolk Police officers busy for about 40 minutes as they created a rolling roadblock to protect it, before persuading the winged wanderer into the boot of their car.

The beleaguered bird was later released safely into water nearby.
