Ptarmigan (Lagopus muta).These superbly adapted birds live high in the mountains , a hard species to find unless you are prepared to walk high into their habitat, in th eUk, this is limited and my favourite place to find them is the Cairngorm mountains in Scotland.One of the species we like to hep our clients find during our Scottish winter wildlife trips.
