This is a Black Grouse (known in the Yorkshire Dales as a Blackcock). They 'Lek' (display) in the Spring to be the dominant male and have the right to mate with the Greyhens (females). At first light the noise and action at the Lek is incredible and its one of my favourite wildlife experiences from anywhere.
