• Grouse moor burning is now banned on blanket bog
• The burning season started on 1st October and runs until 15th April
• Please report all burning you see to Valerie.Wheeler@RSPB.org.uk – if possible with photos, videos and location info.
Grouse estates burn the moors to engineer optimal breeding habitat for red grouse – for their own profit.
We need to keep an eye out on the moors to see if the landowners respect this limitation on burning.
