Capercaillie


On the fourth day in the Cairngorms, whilst walking the woodland at around 9.30am, a distant Capercaillie could be heard. It's a bird I'd never seen before, but the sound was unmistakeable. If you've never heard the amazing sounds of a Caper, watch this short clip. Then this bird came marching out of the woods towards the trail, and put on a short but stunning display, before settling down to feed on the heather on the forest floor.
