Re-establishing Black grouse into the Bowland Fells (ONLINE EVENT)

- August 10th, 2020

September 8, 2020 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us for this presentation by Dr Philip  Warren, senior scientist at the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust.

Black grouse were abundant in the Bowland Fells between the 1950s and 1970s, but subsequently declined and were absent by 2000. 

Since then , there have been considerable habitat improvements on moorland and moorland fringe habitats which, combined with a recovery in black grouse populations in the North Pennines and Yorkshire Dales to the north, mean that range expansion into this area, either naturally or through translocation, is being considered to restore birds into this area.

This event will be hosted as a live Zoom session.

Cost: Free – although donations to Champion Bowland (via a link on booking) are welcomed.
