Entry from British & World English dictionary
An area of managed moorland for the shooting of red grouse.
- Most of Ilkley Moor is owned by Bradford Council and it is managed as a traditional grouse moor except that shooting is not allowed.
- If hen harrier numbers were managed on grouse moors, such as by removing eggs from some nests, it might allow more harriers to be conserved than if the grouse-shooting was abandoned.
- The Moorland Visitor's Code highlights that dogs are not allowed on most access land on grouse moors to protect rare moorland birds.
