Chough Nestcam live
Chough nestcam for the 2018 breeding season, now LIVE!
The pictures are from our seclusion aviaries, a quiet location where we breed Red-billed Choughs as part of our long-term project for the species.
The cameras have a small set of lights inside the nestbox to illuminate activity during the day. At night, they switch to infra-red, and the birds can often be seen roosting, incubating eggs or brooding chicks.
Find out all the latest chough news with updates, photos and video clips on the Operation Chough website www.chough.org
For news on the reintroduction of the species in Jersey, where choughs bred here at Paradise Park are now living free after an absence of 100 years, go to the Birds on the Edge project page. Since 2015 four chicks have fledged in the wild, with special thanks to our partners at the Durrell Wildlife Park.
Here is a photo of Ray at Chough HQ where during the breeding season he monitors the chicks every day, weighing them and giving supplementary feed if needed.
