Artist's Description

There’s a certain place I go on the moors between Brough in Cumbria,NW England and Middleton-in-Teesdale,County Durham,NE England.Just over the county boundary into Durham,Red Grouse are quite abundant.They seem to stay on the Durham side as the habitat is more to their liking.They are very elusive birds,hiding in the grass and heather,popping their heads up now and then to look for danger. Consequently they are hard to catch on camera.However at this one spot along the road,they seem to like hanging out on the stone wall and as long as you stay in the car,you can get a reasonably close shot.I’d managed to get a few shots of this female until she got bored and wandered along the wall to hide behind this clump of grass growing on top of the wall.
Incidentally,the white blobs in the background were patches of snow on the moor behind.
