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.

Decreasing woodland bird population needs closer monitoring, says Island Nature Trust

'If we're not out there on the ground, these things catch up to us'

There's been a big drop in the number of woodland birds on P.E.I. according to recent surveys, says the Island Nature Trust. 
The surveys aren't part of a structured monitoring program, but the group said it's seeing a general trend towards fewer forest birds across the Island.

"If we're not out there on the ground, these things catch up to us," said Megan Harris, the executive director of the trust.

"And before we realize what's going on, we're trying to scramble to fix something that we don't fully understand."
