Female Red Grouse (Lagopus lagopus)

By teocali
A wild female Red Grouse (Lagopus lagopus) taken at Lochendorb, near Grant Town on Spey, a couple of weeks ago. These birds as so hard to spot as their camouflage makes them almost invisible amid the heather moorland and when you do see them it is very hard to get close.

Many thanks for your support of my last upload. Really appreciated as always Smile

A tremendous image of this moorland gamebird in its natural habitat, the low viewpoint works so well. It looks like you had to use all your tracking skills and fieldcraft to obtain this fine shot.

Excellent Sylvia. They really are difficult to see. Usually the first I am aware of them is when they fly up in front of me when out walking.
