"Each year in August the Glorious Twelfth marks the start of the shooting season across the UK, and has been an important date in the country calendar for years. The day marks the beginning of the grouse hunting season, with other birds such as pheasants being hunted later in the year.

Grouse season lasts 121 days and the birds are not allowed to be shot on a Sunday. The birds are prized for their flying speed, and the short time they are in season. Grouse can fly across the moors at a staggering 70 mph, known for keeping low to the grass. With their clever trick of switching direction in an instant, shooting the birds can be tricky."
