An intersting piece of folklore, re-told by Enys Tregarthen.

At Trevose Head in Cornwall 600 pixies were said to have gathered dancing and laughing in a circle that had appeared upon the turf until one of their number, named Omfra, lost his laugh. After searching amongst the barrows of the ancient kings of Cornwall on nearby St Breock Downs, he heads to Bodmin Moor and wades through the bottomless Dozmary Pool until his laugh is restored by King Arthur in the form of a Chough.
