Chris Packham’s Revive group has struck its first blow against Scottish grouse shooting, and it is leaving legislators puzzled. Revive’s new report ‘Back To Life’ says that grouseshooting produces just £30 per hectare.

The organisation backed by the TV naturalist says that if Scotland’s grousemoors were turned over to housing or horticulture, they would make a much more profitable £12,000 per hectare. However, even MSPs have rejected Packham’s plan to zone Scotland’s uplands for greenhouses and flats.
