Black Grouse: After a couple of quiet days birding I decided to make my own luck and started early at Worlds Ends famous Black Grouse lek.

I've never witnessed the lek here and I was not disappointed.

I counted 17 males however there could have been more lurking behind the grasses and heather. When we arrived these male birds were happily strutting their stuff at around 150 yards away. 

150 yards is good, but 10 meters is much better, I think we got lucky as one individual flew away from the main lek and started displaying almost right in front of the car, only one word AWESOME!
