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.

Queen, Beatles and David Bowie album covers, among others, have been reimagined with birds by the RSPB as the charity claims 40million have disappeared from the UK's skies in half a century.
They show bird-headed people posing in similar positions to the iconic celebrities with four snapped crossing a road, one standing with a lightning stripe across its face and four others posing in formation.
The mock-up's publication coincides with the release of song 'Let nature sing' composed using birdsong from endangered and common UK species.
It was put together with sounds from more than 100 birds by the Globe theatre's musical director, a folk singer and an RSPB project manager.
