Red Grouse on the moors

There are estimated to be over 5,000 breading pairs of Red Grouse on the heather covered moorlands of the Dark Peak area of the Peak District, so it is not unusual to see them on our guided walks.   The males can be instantly recognised by their distinctive red ‘eyebrows’.  Great places to see them include popular walking areas such as Kinder Scout, Bleaklow, Derwent Edge, and Stanage Edge.

Book onto any of our open group moorland guided walks for a good chance of seeing  them and hearing their unmistakable call.
