Game bird, brown with orange/coppery sides. red around eyes and pointed tail.Very noisy.
No interactions present.
See my post from yesterday, exactly the same, and in the same location!!
I saw some not too far away a couple of weeks ago but did not get photo. Think they are more obvious at this time of year.
Thank you all I defer to your expertise however in my pocket guide it looks like a pheasant as there was not a picture of a red grouse. Having found a better guide I will concede that the red is only above the eyes and not all around. I my own defence i have only just started at trying to identify species. Thanks once again.
EBGood no worries on he id, practise makes perfect after all, i find it a good method to photograph species then look later, or upload to ispot. Keep it up :)
