How to identify

The black feathers of the Chough (pronounced 'chuff') clearly mark it out as a crow, but unlike any other member of the family, it has a red bill and legs. It is found only on the west of the British Isles. It's a master flier and readily shows off its skills with dramatic aerial displays of diving and swooping. This Schedule 1 species can be found in flocks in autumn and winter.
