black grouse lek

black grouse lek (early start around 5am)

This experience can be done as part of either a full day or half day experience. The main difference is the early bird start time! *Seasonal late March/April

  • Prices and conditions are the same as the full and half day Wildlife Experiences.

A Black Grouse Lek is an incredible thing to see and hear. At Wild Eskdale we can guide you to the possibility of witnessing this brilliant natural behaviour without disturbing the grouse. This can be done as either part of the full or half day experience (See Itinerary). We will aim to be on location for 5am!

*we cannot guarentee that you will see the birds leking but we will take you to known lek sites that provide the best opportunity in the area.
