Unfortunately no pictures. Playing golf on heathland course in Midlothian (noted for the resident black grouse) I had a fine view, three yard distant, of a pair of LBJs. feeding on the fairway. I am familiar with most of this type of bird but was struck by the colouring of the male.
The head ,back and tail were russet / orange brown in marked contrast the the mid brown of the wings and of the female. Not a reed bunting.
Any ideas?
