Today is the glorious 12th, but if you are tempted to go and bag a couple of birds, get out your cheque book, it costs £2,000 to £3,000 a day to shoot grouse.

(The costs of leasing a grouse moor are around £150,000 a year. A traditional dish of roast grouse with bread sauce, game chips and gravy will cost about £25. You do the math.)
