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.

Joint assault on animal crime as it's learned 90 birds of prey killed by poison in eight years


More than 90 birds of prey have been poisoned in Northern Ireland since 2006, Environment Minister Mark H Durkan has revealed.

The minister has pledged to improve the way wildlife crime is tackled in the province following a wildlife crime summit attended by nearly 30 organisations.

Mr Durkan said poisoning of birds of prey was an issue of huge concern and one that could hopefully be addressed by the Partnership Against Wildlife Crime (PAW), which includes the PSNI, animal welfare and countryside sports organisations.
