SO CHOUGH ED!
Seven Choughs landed on my roof last week,
Swooping & choughing up from the Zawn.
FIRE RAVENS,The National bird of Cornwall,until recently, extinct in the county.
A pair have nested successfully in a nearbyl sea cave for the last two years,
The first Choughs born in West Penwith for 150years,are pecking around in my yard!
