In all 15 chicks have hatched from four nests around the coast of West Cornwall. The project to support the chough‘s return has been overseen by a coalition of RSPB, Natural England and National Trust with huge support from local communities and volunteers.

UPDATE 2012: Cornwall’s choughs have a fantastic year: here.

June 2011. RSPB Northern Ireland is celebrating a year of rare returns with the fledging of two choughs on Rathlin Island just a week after announcing the return of the golden plover to Co Fermanagh: here.

This Valentine’s Day saw the return of a special couple to the cliff tops of Rathlin Island. Special because they are Northern Ireland’s only remaining pair of chough, back again for another breeding season: here.
