Presented by Patrick Laurie: The Black Grouse is a lively natural history interwoven with a personal account of an on-going battle to conserve black grouse on a farm in Galloway.  The author’s 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.  ‘This beautiful book is a labour of love, with its lively text and striking illustrations by the author. ‘  The Scotsman, Sept 2012  ‘ Whichever background you come from, this is must to read as it covers so many basic questions, including the age-old quandary between the shooting world and conservation. ’ The Highland News, July 2012  ‘ It is without doubt a book which, no matter your individual knowledge of the bird in question, you will learn something from.  For many, they will learn a lot, because Patrick has done an exceptional job in researching this bird.   Lindsay Waddell, NGO Chairman, Aug 2012   Patrick Laurie is Project Manager and Head of the Country Market and Sporting Sale at the Heather Trust, and has written a monthly column for the Shooting Gazette since 2009.  The Black Grouse book is signed by the author and available when required from The Heather Trust.  FREE postage and packing within the UK mainland.
