Birdwatcher's cat dines on rare flying visitor

A rare feathered visitor to Britain has survived a gruelling 15-hour journey from Norway, only to be eaten by a birdwatcher's cat on arrival.

The cat's owner wrote to a bird charity to report the unusual sight of a Norwegian robin in her garden in the north of England but she had to confess it was dead in her cat's mouth at the time.

The unlucky bird was one of only 30 Scandinavian robins known to have made the 645-kilometre flight to Britain since 1919.
