Red Grouse

Cock Red Grouse- Great Fryup Dale

I am going to sketch grouse again this morning. The males are extremely showy on the moors. I even had one following the car as I drove slowly along a moorland road- window down impersonating a male Red Grouse, it takes all sorts! Their calls “go back, go back” along with the sound of Curlew, Lapwing, Golden Plovers, Meadow Pipits and Skylarks make up the glorious chorus of northern moors in March.
