The first fledglings hopped out of their nest on 1st June - three very well grown chicks at a north coast site. They are not colour ringed as their nest site is inaccessible.
Next up came a brood of four on 4th June from St Just area, again they are unringed. On 8th June two families of three fledged from other Penwith sites, (one brood ringed) and on Sunday the Lizard brood of four made their tentative first flights (see image of white/yellow below).
There are still at least six more nests to fledge so it is too early to predict how many there will be in total - but it should be a record year.
Thanks to Chough Watchers Paul and Mark for the photos.
