The arrival of three Chough chicks on The Lizard has delighted conservationists. It means the future is looking bright for Cornwall's iconic bird which had become extinct in the 1970s.

A targeted campaign to bring the chough back to the county now means there are thirty seven of the birds at various sites in Cornwall.
