This is the first book to be written on this fascinating, severely declining species, the Black Grouse. Author Patrick Laurie's lively natural history is interwoven with his account of his on-going battle to reintroduce them on his farm in the Scottish Borders. His beautiful illustrations convey his passion for these vulnerable birds, so full of character, from their aggressive lekking behaviour to their desperate struggle to survive against nearly-impossible odds in modern Britain.

* Black Grouse range in Britain has shrunk by 95% in the past 100
years, with 25% of that decline since the 1990.
* Mature black grouse consistently fly higher and faster than almost
any other gamebird, making them fantastic, testing quarry for
sportsmen.
* If we allow raptor predation to increase, we risk losing this iconic
bird species in Britain altogether.
* During the frozen winter of 2009/10 almost half the population of
black grouse being monitored by the Game and Wildlife
Conservancy Trust in the more treeless North Pennines were
killed off by heavy snows and frost.
* The author explains why he believes it is still possible to stage a
major black grouse renaissance in moorland shooting.
