Black Grouse on my houselist

I know that Black Grouse is a breeding bird of Løvstakken, one of Bergens seven hills. So I scan every once in a while with my telescope this little mountain. Most of the time I don't see other than passing gulls, but early this morning I saw a male Black Grouse in full courtship, albeit at a great distance. In other words a new bird for my houselist.
Not bad and during the two-and-a-half years we've been living here I have seen and heard some good birds,  among others a flyby Common Moorhen at night, Pine Grosbeak, Green Woodpecker and Black-bellied Dipper all flying by. Other birds that are worth mentioning are Woodcock in the house, Siberian Chiffchaff and Yellow-browed Warbler!!
