Crime writer Frances Fyfield undertakes some ornithological detective-work.

With its distinctive red bill and legs, the chough is the heraldic bird of Cornwall.

But where once they clattered in their hundreds around its rugged, windblown coast, today just about the only place you'll catch a glimpse of the Cornish chough is on a pub sign.

Frances Fyfield sets out to discover why they disappeared and finds that, for the first time in 30 years, choughs are returning to their Cornish clifftop habitat.
