Cornish Choughs in West Cornwall. 30th April 2018.






Had at least 6 and probably more Cornish Choughs today in West Cornwall.

I spoke to the RSPB guy keeping an eye on them and he saw 12 yesterday!

I settled in down amongst the rocks after first checking with the guy that I was nowhere near any nest site.

Amazingly they flew in and started to feed very close to me and then the adult male (with the yellow and blue leg rings) landed and proceeded to feed the adult female just a few feet away.

So exciting to see our favourite Cornish birds looking so good!
