West Cornwall Chough Watch

I am involved in the monitoring of a Chough nest site in West Cornwall, in the hope that they will establish and become a permanent addition to our local bird species.Last year they bred in this area for the first time in One Hundred and Fifty years.The pictures I take I give to a kids club called the Chough club that is run by a local teacher.The first photo is one of the breeding choughs.

Maw and Paw Jackdaw


  1. Super photos! I especially like the Pied Wagtail photo. Perfect against the darker background. I have never seen a Jackdaw before. Nice photo of them also.

  2. Nice shots. I love the Gannet shot. Tried to get some of them in flight myself last weekend, but I was not close enough.

  3. I so hope the nesting project is successful. Here's to the choughs!

  4. beautiful images and i like your blog. layout and content is just superb.
