hello can anyone help. i was out walking today in bristol in a place called avon valley farm then i saw a very dark brown bird with 8 very small fledgelings. when it noticed me it got very low to the ground and stood still for about a min. it looked to me like a female black grouse the same shape beak and tail as a grouse and the fledgelings were almost black,it was definately a game bird. ive looked in all my books this is the closest bird i can match it to but there seem to be no records of this bird in the area.
