Chough: Well it's not everyday you see a Chough in Lancashire, this individual is the 2nd Fylde record and the 9th record for Lancashire.
It has been in the Blackpool area for a couple of weeks and has finally settled down at Stanley Park.
The origins of the bird are unclear, there are populations in Anglesey and on the Isle of Man, both of which aren't to far as the Chough fly's.

It took me about half an hour to pin the bird down as I was unfamiliar with the access on to the golf course so played it safe and stayed to the boundary edges.
At first the bird was pretty distant, but with a little patience it came a lot closer and began foraging in a sand bunker.

A must see for any Lancs Listers!
