We were fortunate to be sitting on cliffs in Cornwall, waiting to photograph a sunset when two choughs landed about 80 - 100 metres away from us and began feeding, picking through the short coastal grass for small invertebrates. They stayed for about 20 minutes before flying off together inland from the coast. Please note: Choughs are a Schedule 1 species. They have special legal protection during their breeding season which makes it a criminal offence to intentionally disturb them. If choughs land near you do not frighten or disturb them but allow them to go about their business uninterrupted.
