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.

A quiet British street has been turned into a real life version of Alfred Hitchcock's horror film The Birds after being plagued by thousands of pigeons.

Residents on Court Road in Sparkhill, Birmingham, are calling on the council to start fining people who feed the birds.

Thousands of pigeons flock to the street, which overlooks a local park, every day - covering the pavement, cars and residents, with droppings.

Shocking pictures show the birds completely covering the roofs of rows of terraced houses as they wait for people to come and feed them.

Birmingham City Council have placed signs in the area urging residents to "Stop feeding pigeons!".
