A cyclist has been "repeatedly attacked" by a large bird of prey that tries to sink its sharp talons into into him when he bikes out near his home.
Aidan Williams says he has been dive-bombed by the predator on a regular basis on a country lane near his home in Sandon, Staffordshire.
Experts believe the bird – which Mr Williams thinks could be a hawk – is resorting to the aggressive behaviour because it's trying to protect its young.
But bizarrely, the bird only seems to target him and ignores other cyclists, cars and walkers.
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.
