ES Case Study: The Cornwall Chough Project (AE023)

Cornish legend has it that when King Arthur was killed in battle, his spirit lived on in the chough, the red beak and legs signifying his bloody demise. Choughs died out as a resident species in England when the last one died in Cornwall in 1973. Choughs lost their foothold in England for several reasons.
