At long last we have received our 2012 stamp of 'Our Famous Rona Grouse'.
In the early part of the year this cock grouse stakes his territory between
and the South of the island. Church Cave
Visitors encroaching the area are treated to a territorial display only a few feet from their own feet. He has no fear and
will fly in to harass visitors even in the company of dogs.
He does not seem to have a mate and the opinion is that this is why he is so active.
There are two stamps both of 0.75p value. One with a black and white background the other with a sepia background,
and the Grouse in his full plumage. The block of two is shown above.
