The Cornish ChoughsIn 2001 choughs returned to Cornwall after a long absence. They were not re-introduced, but wild birds from southern Ireland looking for a new home. Three birds settled on the Lizard, a pair bred and since then the chough population has gone from strength to strength - in 2012 five pairs fledged 18 young, a record year. Choughs back where they belong, 21st century emblems for Cornwall. Fantastic! We will put more information on this fledgling site in the coming months to provide you with interesting facts, figures and updates on these wonderful birds.
