About the Black Grouse
The black grouse in England is now found in significant numbers, 90% of the population is in the North Pennines (c. 800 males) and as a result, is a priority species for conservation action.
The adults feed mainly on plant material although some insects may be taken in the summer. Their food includes cotton grass flower heads, fruit of sedges and rushed, heather, bilberry, leaves of herbs and the buds and shoots of birch, larch and conifers. The chicks feed on insects in their first few weeks of life.
