Catalogue Note

'As the sun slowly emerges above the distant hills, casting its welcome glow upon the Scottish hillsides, a pack of red grouse awakens, the old cock bird acknowledging both the break of day and a neighbouring pack of birds, incoming from adjoining heathery slopes.' (John Southern, Thorburn's Birds and Mammals, 1986, p.78)
