See Cornish choughs at the Lizard

A joint initiative between the RSPB, the National Trust and Natural England has been responsible for organising a series of events celebrating the return of the historic chough to Cornwall.

The Red-billed Chough, a member of the crow family, has been associated with the county since the days of King Arthur and appears on its Coat of Arms; they disappeared from the area over half a century ago before making an unexpected return in spring 2001.

Now, the Cornwall Chough Project has arranged a number of special days at which anyone interested can come along and try to spot these striking and unusual birds. The first of these takes place at the Lizard’s specially constructed Southerly Point watchpoint on April 1st. Running until June 3rd, this will also be the perfect opportunity to explore one of the most dramatic and picturesque places in the whole of the UK.

Britain’s westernmost county is full of natural wonders and unique events, which all visitors will enjoy. If you are searching for somewhere to spend a relaxing holiday this year, why not look up some of the luxurious Cornwall cottages that are available and experience a getaway to remember?
