ID comment

The Red Grouse has a red eyebrow marking but not a large red facial patch like this, which is typical of the Common Pheasant. This is probably a juvenile.

Hi Chris

I'll have to get a better book and I was in Grouse country....so possibly every pheasant seen was masquerading as a Grouse through my bins at least. Thanks for the correction.
