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.

Seagulls terrorise trapped pensioner

Penny Freeman has spoke of her terror after a flock of seagulls targeted her every time she tried to leave her house.

The 69-year-old was left facing the consequences after beginning to put food out in the garden for small birds, but as she lives in the coastal town of Bridlington in East Yorkshire, she was soon swamped by a large colony of ravenous seagulls.

The problem then escalated when one of the eggs fell from the nest and the adults constantly guarded it.

Ms Freeman told The Sun: "It was terrifying. I couldn't leave the house and I felt like a prisoner. The birds were very threatening - they're like lizards."
