The black grouse are quite rare, so good to see them.

Male black grouse - Tetrao tetrix

Male red grouse - Lagopus lagopus

with impressive eyebrow wattles!

Re: Black and red grouse, on the way home

Thank you 😊

The red grouse are pretty common on the moors round here, as they’re managed for shooting. They have a way of staying hidden and then bursting out from under your feet, with a lot of flapping and squawking- heart attack making!

The black grouse nearly went extinct in the 80s, and there’s a been a lot of conservation work to try to increase their numbers.
