I have been trying to get a decent picture of a Hazel Grouse for a long time and using my new Panasonic Lumix TZ40 which I am currently trying out, I feel that I have succeeded!!
This particular bird was feeding on buds in a Birch tree. This is a relatively small grouse at 35–39 centimetres (14–15 in) in length.
The calls of Hazel Grouse remind me of Treecreeper. You can hear Hazel Grouse calls here,
