Grouse at Grinton Moor

We saw grouse a year ago at Grinton Moor, and we were back there a month ago. I’m pleased to report that there are still grouse and they still seem able to tolerate people in cars. If you get out, they are off rapidly, but you can park close by them and get what photos you can.

Sometimes, they are a little further away and in the heather.


They may sit on the rocks strewn on Grinton Moor which is betwixt Swaledale and Wensleydale.


Time to bring some zoom into play.


All these photos were taken within a few minutes of one another on a very drab day – 15th October 2015.
