A female of the species on a stone wall by the road over the moors in County Durham on the way to Middleton-in-Teesdale from Brough in Cumbria.
This is always a good place to see grouse quite close up as long as you use the car as a hide.The dry stone walls provide a good perch.

    I am duly impressed, nor am I grousing. Both these shots are excellent, I think, but this one Stands Alone, to coin a phrase. Have seen these creatures posing, but have never gotten a good pic. Kudos, J.

  • I think I agree.I liked the female better.Ta muchly.It was the same place as this pair 2 years ago.
