Black Grouse Breeding Success in 2019

Black Grouse Breeding Success in 2019

Posted by Coverhead Estate

We pleased to confirm that we have had the first evidence of Black Grouse breeding success this season with the sighting of a Grey Hen(Female Black Grouse) with 7 well grown plots in tow. A good picture alluded us this time - but watch this space! We know of at least 4 other nesting attempts but have yet to see any further chicks. Grey Hen are secretive birds and the broods notoriously difficult to spot so there may be some more pleasant surprises on the way.
