Funnily enough I’ve been walking across the grouse moors of the North Pennines today. No shooting parties out thankfully but got chatting to a gamekeeper on a quad bike. “Not shooting today then?” I asked. He was telling us that most of the shooting parties were foreign. Lots of Russians and Middle Easterners who weren’t travelling over for obvious reasons. Plus there were problems with group accommodation and hospitality.
I swear I saw a red grouse giving him the Gareth Hunt handshake from behind a clump of heather!
