2020 Ghosts of the Forest - black grouse watch

Sunday 22 March to Sunday 10 May


Price: £10 per person

Booking essential

You'll recognise us easily – we'll be the ones strutting around with our bums in the air. You might think we're dancing, but our bobbing white tails and bubbling call are part of the serious business of mating. Set against the stunning moorland backdrop of Coed Llandegla Forest, groups of us black grouse males meet at our display ground – or lek – to show off to the females, so the stakes are high. Not many people get a chance to see us in action: but you can. Join a guided walk through the forest to a hide where we'll perform approximately 400m away from you.

Our volunteers will point out any wildlife that they see along your walk to and from the hide so keep your eyes peeled as you never know what you are going to see!
