Red Grouse in February.

I'll probably get a chance to go to Ireland on a long weekend in February next year (a long way off, I know), and one of the birds I would like to catch up with is Red Grouse. It seems to be somewhat scarce, so are there any particular sites to be recommended, at that time of year?

Hi Jens,
Walking the heather slopes around the Sally Gap Crossroads in County Wicklow may produce some sightings.

The Slieve Beagh range which straddles the border with Counties Monaghan, Tyrone and Fermanagh hold a small number of grouse. You just have to be lucky to see them. More likely to hear them.

Thanks Monahawk, I don't mind a bit of hiking as long as the weather behaves ;-)
