Red Grouse

Red Grouse Workshop

Available: August to March

Red grouse are beautiful if somewhat amusing birds to photograph. Watching the males posturing to impress the females, or chasing off rivals over the moors is fascinating and exhilarating. Catch the males in the right light and those vibrant wattles can glow bright red.

Pete will drive you to suitable moorland to seek out these game birds, to help you spot them and to suggest photo ideas.
