Not so Glorious Twelfth: Grouse shoots cancelled across Britain after stocks hit by extreme weather 

“The population has been badly affected by the harsh winter, followed by the hot summer and many of the moors in the north of England and the Scottish borders have had to abandon planned events in order to allow stocks to recover” writes Coran Elliott for Amanda Anderson, director of the Moorland Association said: ”Half of grouse shoots across England and Wales have cancelled their entire 2018 shooting programmes with the remainder running a much reduced schedule.” August 12th marks the start of the grouse shooting season, although this year it falls on Monday 13th because it is illegal to shoot game birds on a Sunday in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.It is not illegal in Scotland, but the custom is observed.
