The black grouse is one of the UK’s most endangered species – but an icon of game shooting. Dr Phil Warren and the GWCT have worked tirelessly over the last 20 years to study this wonderful bird, to understand the reasons for its decline and to help us to save it. The reality is that the black grouse population suffers terribly from the effects of modern forestry and farming – but through the work of local gamekeepers, particularly in County Durham, this great bird is starting to make a recovery.
The dinner, in aid of the GWCT, will be held at Cripps Barn at Healey, a fantastic new wedding and corporate entertainment venue on the Durham/Northumberland border – and only a few miles from where the black grouse recovery can be witnessed first hand. Our thanks must go both to Mark Henriques, who is hosting the evening, and to Phil Warren, who will give us a fascinating insight into the black grouse.
After a delicious dinner we will have the opportunity to buy some terrific lots at our Northumberland and Durham Auction. Please book your table now as this is sure to be a sell-out.
