    I could only remember Red and Tub and it does not look red enough for a fresh red , and cannot see blue edges to the pectorals for a tub.


    Ps there is a spotted gurnard but it ain`t so streaked could be right.

    I don't know my gurnards, but I'll go red, even though it doesn't look that red.

    Hiya Gus,

    Nice one... I'll PM the answer so as not to spoil it :)

    As most figured out the steep forehead was the givaway.. it was a Streaked Gurnard.
