A pair of rare birds that left an aviary during a phased reintroduction to the wild release have returned.
Red-billed choughs have not thrived in Jersey for a century and are being reintroduced by an environmental group.
The aim was to allow the birds out for short periods to allow them to gradually adjust to the wild.
On the first release two birds left the flock and spent about a week living in a quarry before returning to the aviary last week.
The Birds on the Edge programme aims to restore the natural diversity of the north coast of the island.
Dr Glyn Young, leading the project, said the birds were born in captivity but hoped they would thrive in the island.

He said after the pair had returned they decided to go back to the original plan of a phased release but not everything went to plan.
