Rather redish-brown - might this be quite a young bird David?
Nice location.

Colours

I would be carefully interpreting the colours from this photo, the sun was getting low so a bit of reddish colouration may just be the result of that. Didn't get a strong reddish impression in the field, but equally don't put much faith in this.
