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.

Rare birds spotted on the Isle of Wight

16th November

Exclusive by Dominic Kureen Reporter
THE Isle of Wight has had the pleasure of some rare visitors this week.
A bevy of black swans were spotted at Newport Harbour and along the River Medina.
Black swans are large, nomadic water birds that breed mainly in Australia.
Notable for their mostly black plumage and red bills, the large birds are not often spotted on the Island.
