Cause Of Chough Deaths Unknown

29th August 2018

Jersey Zoo says the deaths of two of its rare birds ‘does not appear’ to be down to avian malaria.

The two red-billed choughs passed away last week.

Durrell is now waiting on test results from the UK.

It says the three other choughs appear to be in good health, but are being kept off show as a precaution.

The wild population of choughs at Sorel also appear to be healthy.
