The Cornwall Chough Project team (RSPB, National Trust and Natural England) are delighted to say that Cornwall’s choughs have had another fantastic year.
Five nests have successfully produced at least 16 youngsters. We have also witnessed what we believe is the earliest fledging ever recorded in the UK with some young chough on the wing by third week in May.
At Southerly Point on the Lizard where the long-standing pair have nested every year since 2002, the brood is expected to take to the wing next week, why not take a trip down to see them, the watch point is open 10-5 every day weather permitting until 17 June.
Thanks to a growing team of volunteers we have been able to keep track of all the birds,
ensure their nests are undisturbed and run the public watchpoint at Southerly Point.
If you would like to catch up with the choughs and all the latest news there will be a Wildlife Weekend on the Lizard 23/24 June with lots of free activities for all the family.
Thank you to chough watchers Dave Brown and Paul Gillard for the photos.
Please remember if you see a chough family, please give them space and don’t try to get too close.
