Black Grouse

The drive over the moors to Langdon Beck this morning was a bit unpleasant with the road covered in frozen slush. Good numbers of Red Grouse were at the roadside all the way there.

The Black Grouse were on view as soon as we got through Langdon Beck. Most of the 53 we saw were feeding distantly in fields but 3 females were sitting on walls and a male feeding in a roadside bush. 2 Buzzards and 2 Kestrels were feeding over the snow dusted moor here.

No sign of the Yellow-legged Gull at Elswick again today.
