We went out for a drive around yesterday to get an idea of potential areas for some landscape shots at sunset/sunrise. Whilst there we stopped several times along the road for the red grouse that were wandering around. These birds make a great noise, we even had one constantly saying "oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no". Lovely to watch and listen to.
Not a very happy grouse, but it was cold and windy.
