Grouse and hay

Looks like it will be a good season on the moors this year. The dry breeding season has helped all the ground nesting species. Large broods of grouse have been seen. It isn't long til the start of the shooting season, which is in effect like a harvest. It should prove a better harvest than for farmers who need hay. Think that will be in short supply and expensive this year.
