Our chough – coming soon!

The Museum is delighted to have been able to buy a chough at auction and we are very grateful to Alan Dumper for bidding successfully.  With choughs now living at Wheal Coates it is important to help visitors identify them.

The chough is currently being conserved by Simon Moore who, many years ago, conserved our leatherback turtle and cuckoo, but we hope to have him back on display later in the season.
