Chough by the Dozen

Chough by the Dozen
One of my reasons for visiting Bardsey Island was because of the colony of chough - glossy black crows with bright red beaks and legs - that live on the cliffs at the western end of the island. There were plenty there, but difficult to approach closely without climbing gear!

Many thank Nick. Seen them in small numbers once on the Great Orme, but never anything like this. And what a racket!

Thanks Steve. It is indeed. From watching them I concluded this group included two families, each with three young.

Many thanks Mike. I had to go to the end of Wales! Had a tipoff that there are some more approachable specimens at South Stack on Anglesey.
