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.

Decapitated ducks discovered in Lincolnshire park

Two decapitated Mallard have been found in Sidney Park, Lincolnshire, with the discoverer believing the grizzly deaths to have been executed by a human. The RSPCA hasn't ruled out that it was a deliberate act.
The finder, who does not wish to be named, says she found the bodies of two decapitated ducks last month, and believes the deaths are not the result of any animal. She was out walking her dog early in the morning, when she found one body a short distance away from the pond before, a few minutes later, she discovered another nearby.
She told the Grimsby Telegraph: "I was out walking the dogs in the park like I do most mornings when I have them, when I was shocked to find two headless ducks near the pond. At first, I thought that it was probably foxes that did it, but then when I looked around the area, I noticed that there were very few feathers scattered about the place, which usually happens whenever a fox attacks a bird like that.
