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.

The RSPB's new single is at No. 11...

The RSPB's new single has hit the charts - and it's made entirely of bird song.
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds released a single titled 'Let Nature Sing' last week, hoping to raise awareness for endangered birds.
In all, the single features 25 different types of bird song, ranging from blackbirds to robins, woodpeckers to warblers.
Stormzy and Taylor Swift are currently fighting it out for number one spot, with 'Let Nature Sing' hitting No. 11 on the midweeks.
Martin Harper, the RSPB’s director of conservation, said in a statement:
Over the last few days, thousands of people have bought and streamed our track to hear nature’s finest singers and show that they love bird song. This has started a national conversation as millions will have heard, seen and read the facts showing that, shockingly, nature is in crisis in the UK.
The response to 'Let Nature Sing' sends a powerful message that yes, nature is amazing but it is also in trouble. The good news is that it is not too late, we know what needs to be done and together we can take action to restore it for us and for future generations.
