Come on you Reds

Stood watching and listening to a couple of brace of Red Grouse on Bulbeck Common a couple of miles out of Blanchland while out walking with Mr. Cheviot on Thursday. They came out with some amazing sounds and just look at those wattles gorged with blood!   Double click does the trick
I had read somewhere that the males were more approachable in spring while defending their breeding patch from other males. This proved to be the case.
Here is an image of a common fungi we sat beside while having our bait on the edge of Slaley Forest.
Trametes Versicolour looking rather dapper in the spring sun.
