COR­NISH CHOUGH SUC­CESS

Bird Watching (UK) - - News Wire -

Choughs in Corn­wall have had their best breed­ing sea­son since the species made a sur­prise re­turn to the Duchy 15 years ago. Eight out of the 12 pairs that at­tempted to breed this year have suc­cess­fully raised 23 young be­tween them, bring­ing the to­tal num­ber of Cor­nish Choughs to 54. As well as this, it seems that some of the birds rear­ing young were one year olds, a rare event, as Choughs usu­ally do not breed un­til they are two years old.
