Black grouse lek survey in Ross-shire
The UK population of black grouse declined by 22% between the national surveys in 1995/6 and 2005. To establish core areas for recovery in the north of Scotland, black grouse strongholds have been surveyed for lekking males. These surveys attempted to fill in gaps left by previous, recent surveys.
