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.

More than 150 birdwatchers flock to Norwich man’s living room

A man’s living room has become a birdwatcher’s paradise after a rare starling decided to nest in his garden.
Stephen Leake, from New Costessey, has been letting bird lovers enter his home to get a look at a Rose-Coloured Starling, a bird that is rarely spotted in England.
The teacher first spotted the bird in his garden on October 7. He reported it to the RSPB and gave his postcode. Within a day he noticed groups of people outside his house trying to get a glimpse of the bird.
Since then Mr Leake has had more than 150 birdwatchers come in his home.
The Rose-Coloured Starling normally breeds in eastern Europe and Asia such as Kazakhstan and Russia.
