Capercaillie Tetrao urogallus

The British population of these amazing birds is restricted to a handful of birds in central Scotland. The best place to see them is the RSPB reserve at Loch Garten, but you need to be there early (before 5.30 am), and they're only available there from mid April to mid May.
