Spring Pair’s counts have been delayed this year due to late falls of snow driven into deep drifts by ‘beastly’ weather from the North East. However reports from the lower lying North York Moors are very encouraging indeed although heather has been browned by gale force winds straight of the North sea. First indications of next season’s prospects come from the annual spring counts although this year we may not get any information from the high Pennine moors before Easter as they are still covered in snow. It may even be decided to dispense altogether with counts on these higher moors, leaving the grouse undisturbed to nest.
The booking season gets earlier each year with most repeat teams confirming their programmes by the end of February. However some parties prefer to wait until the spring before booking and there are also those who don’t pick up the phone until August, assuming that extra days will always be added at the last minute.
