Photo of the Week

In springtime male Black grouse Tetrao tetrix gather in ‘leks’ in a dramatic breeding display in which several birds adopt a ritualised posture with head thrust forward and down showing bright crimson ‘eyebrows’ to attract a mate. Black grouse populations have dwindled steadily throughout the 20th century. They inhabit upland wood and moorland margins, where recent land use changes such as conifer forestation, drainage and over-grazing have limited their traditional habitat. Today, black grouse are only present in more sparsely populated areas of Scotland, parts of the Welsh uplands and the North Pennines.
