Choughs Breeding at Paradise Park, Hayle, Cornwall
These images are from our seclusion aviaries, where we are continuing to build up our flock of choughs. This year we have five pairs of nesting choughs. The birds have been put into their breeding aviaries at the start of March.
Over the next few months we hope to bring you images of choughs nests - from the first few twigs being placed in the nestboxes, to the final fledging of the chough chicks.
The nest cameras have a small set of lights placed inside the nestbox to illuminate activity during the day. At night, they switch to infra-red, and the birds can often be seen roosting, especially when the female is incubating.
Webcam images from 2012
The cameras may shut down at night.
Many thanks to Mike & all at Handykam for cameras, software and technical support.
