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.

Two penguins have been found by police officers two months after they were stolen.
The pair of Humboldt penguins were taken in November last year from a zoo in Nottinghamshire.
Police officers rescued them on Wednesday afternoon in Strelley Village, west Nottingham, after a tipoff, and returned them to the undisclosed zoo.
A 23-year-old-man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and theft. He has since been released under investigation.
Sgt Andrew Browning and PC Paul Toon of Nottinghamshire police worked together during the investigation.
