Your essential guide to grouse shooting and moorland management

Red grouse (www.davidkjaer.com)After spending 46 years researching and advising in the uplands, we support grouse moor management for three primary reasons:

  1. The habitat management undertaken on grouse moors preserves and enhances heather-dominated habitats.
  2. The package of management, notably habitat enhancement along with predator control, contributes to the conservation of a suite of upland bird species including upland waders. This preservation of habitat and its wildlife thus stems national declines which have been driven by land-use change, predation pressure and climate change.
  3. This is a land use which delivers high nature conservation value but is funded primarily by private investment and supports local communities economically, socially and culturally.
