On the way home we decided to take a detour to Allendale
to look for Black Grouse. My usual spot only produced Red Grouse and Pheasant, so we headed for another site where I had seen them in the past. A quick scan produced four Black Cock sitting on a wall and a rather beaten up looking bird sheltering behind the wall preening.
With all the hype about the new Nikon P900 bridge camera, I was considering trading my SX50 in for one. But then yesterday whilst up around Druridge my trusty SX50 produced these shots.
