Red Grouse

It was another bitterly cold day in the north-east of England, and this red grouse could surely feel the nip! This individual was photographed early afternoon on the North Yorkshire moors, near Commondale after a cold but successful morning near Whitby... more on that next!
The afternoon finished as well as the day had started, when CB picked up two bewick's swan (a county mega these days) near Blyth - a quick hop into the car and the two birds were being grilled within minutes of the call from STH. Great stuff.
