Heather burning on Cocklake Side
Heather is burnt off early in spring before the grouse have chosen nesting sites, to leave a patchwork of old and new heather providing both cover and food. I was particularly taken with the grouse in the old grass between the photographer and the flames looking rather uncertain about what to do next. Eventually it decided to fly off, as several others had done from nearer the fire as I watched.
