Black Grouse

Black game/black grouse are also known as black cock and grey hens (female) and are a native bird to Scotland.

They can live in a more generalised habitat than other grouse including forest edge, open woodland, moorland edge, heath, and peat land. This habitat can be threatened by intensive management, draining and forest clearance, and black grouse need careful management, which can include controlled shooting.

Season Dates
