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.

Birders have RARE shot to spot Tree Pipit on Table Mountain

Cape Town - SANParks has agreed to open the Perdekloof picnic site, usually closed in winter for a short time in a bid to make the most of a rare Tree Pipit seen in the area. 

Perdekloof picnic site will be opened to the general public on Friday, 7 August, from 09:00 to 14:00 only.

On Monday, 3 August, SANParks got exciting news of an odd bird - possibly the rare Tree Pipit - photographed at Perdekloof Picnic Site near Cape Point in Table Mountain National Park. 

Although the photos taken on the day (not the photo seen below) were not of the greatest quality, SANPark said, "The bird looks very much like a Tree Pipit."
