The chough nests webcam at Paradise Park is now online. Click here to view.
Our chough nests webcam is up and running. All five nests are progressing well. Nests 1, 3 & 5 are just ahead of 2 & 4, which is the same pattern as last year.
We start by giving the birds large twigs, and then move on to smaller twigs, sprigs of heather, and finally moss and horse hair and sheep wool.
For some reason the choughs prefer white horse hair to darker colours – possibly as it is closer to the colour of sheep wool.
Many thanks to Old Mill Stables at Lelant for their regular gift of horse hair.
