    The Cornish chough has expanded its range into mid Cornwall and in the next decade the species could be breeding in Devon, the RSPB has said.
     
    Choughs that were born in west Cornwall are now living on cliffs between Perranporth and Padstow, it said.
     
    The species returned to Cornwall in 2001. About 21 choughs currently live in the county.
     
    The RSPB said it expected birds from populations in Cornwall and Wales to re-establish the species in Devon.
