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.

Cuckoos return to UK

First cuckoo
April 25th, 10.32am. We just heard a cuckoo outside the Wildlife Extra office in Herefordshire. Having followed the BTO cuckoo migration all the way to Central Africa and back, we were surprised to hear a cuckoo here in Herefordshire as as yet, as far as we know anyway, none of the BTO cuckoos have made it back yet, and at least one is still in Africa.

Has anyone else heard a cuckoo yet?
