Cornish Chough Watchpoint

Over the past six seasons the pair of wild choughs on The Lizard has successfully raised 24 young, many of which have survived to adulthood and recolonised other stretches of Cornwall’s coast. Come to the chough watchpoint at the National Trust’s, Southerly Point. Information wardens will update you on all the latest chough news and show you the birds as they fly to and from their nesting cave. Watchpoint closed in bad weather. The Cornwall Chough Project is a partnership between RSPB, Natural England and The National Trust. It is also part of Action for Birds in England, a partnership between RSPB and Natural England.

  1. I visited my brother in Cornwall last week (for the first time) and made sure that a trip to the Lizard was in the schedule. I am delighted to say that I saw both the male and female Chough in flight. Brilliant!! This was a first for me. Well done to all those involved in the Chough project.

  2. Hi CB,
    The Cornish Chough is probably one of the most amazing birds I have seen in the South West and it is great news that they are on the increase again with everyones help. Talking of which, have you seen a wonderful Cornish Chough Nest cam at Paradise Park in Hayle. Check it out. It is wonderful to see them live on the web – http://www.paradisepark.org.uk/choughs/webcam/index.htm Great footage and great work by all.
