The Glorious Twelfth is the start of the game season and sees the first day of shooting on the grouse moors.
The Red Grouse is a completely wild bird living on the heather moorlands of the UK.
The season is short, lasting for just 16 weeks to mid-December.
These birds are much sought after by chefs and home cooks and only hunted when there is a surplus.
