Grouse

An illustration from Herbert Byng Hall's book "Highland Sports and Highland Quarters". There are four species of grouse; the red grouse, black grouse, capercaillie and the ptarmigan. This is a red grouse, which is the most common. Red grouse populations are managed on shooting estates but, unlike pheasants, they cannot be hand reared. Grouse shooting is a highly organised affair with groups of beaters driving the birds towards the guns. Grouse hunting is also undertaken with working gun dogs
