All hail to wonderful Herman the German dictionary - it has just translated a word of quite remarkable obscurity:
die Auerhahnbalz - the mating time of the Capercaillie. The Capercaillie is a magnificent bird - the males are nearly 3ft tall, dark colour but red eyelids (like an enormous grouse) and have a loud, raucous call which may be heard rattling through remote Scottish conifer woods in spring when it indulges in spectacular display. I have never seen one and they are very rare but they seem to have been in the forests around Schamers as they are noted in the section on hunting.
Of course David Attenborough has heard of the them!
YAY, WOW, and THANKS to Su, Herman and David ☺ !
