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.

Two more convictions for illegal bird trapping in Malta


This morning a bird trapper was fined 2400 Euros and lost his hunting and trapping licence for 3 years after being found guilty by the court of illegally trapping finches inside the Majistral nature & history park this spring.

Another man from Zurrieq was fined 1200 Euros and had both of his licences suspended for a period of 2 years for illegal finch trapping in the spring of 2014.

Both cases were reported to the police by CABS and they also provided the court with video evidence of the illegal trapping they had observed.
