Here are a couple of sketches of Red Grouse in their snowy habitat on Westerdale moor yesterday. I am in my element at the moment with snow today and more forecast for the weekend. Yes I look forward to some warmer weather but the current conditions create some wonderful sketching opportunites and I am constantly struck by the tenacity of Red Grouse as they survive the harsh conditions.
