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.

Conservation group spots new bird species in Cagayan wetlands / 03:29 PM January 25, 2019
MANILA, Philippines — While the number of water birds seen in Cagayan wetlands decreased, conservationists have noted the presence of new bird species in the area.
Haribon Foundation on Friday said their recent bird monitoring activity revealed lower population of water birds in Palaui Island and Buguey wetlands.
According to the group, one plausible reason for the decrease in population “is the habitat change of birds in Buguey wetlands due to the recent monocropping of mangroves in the area.”
However, the number of bird species that recently appeared in Cagayan wetlands has increased compared to that of 2018, Haribon said.
The conservation group said among the new species was the vulnerable (Vu) Chinese Egret, which they spotted in Buguey; and the near threatened (NT) Northern Lapwing, which they saw in Palaui Island.
