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 :)
