In the Capercaillie woods

Last week when I was out walking on a road in the forest, I stumbled across a couple of capercaillies that flew up. When I looked more carefully the road was full of Capercaillie droppings for a distance of about 100 m. I decided to return early next morning and wait for them. Got a couple of pictures.

    These are magnificent birds and although there are a small number in Scotland, I saw my firts capercaillie in Finnmark almost 40 years ago – and I’ve never forgotten it!

    I agree. Here you usually see one or two if you go for a trip on the small roads in the woods. The often sit on the road eating grit that they need for their digestion.
