Management of forests for capercaillie in Scotland

Research Report (incl. Bulletins and Technical Papers)
Nicholas Picozzi
1994
Following a decline in Capercaillie populations, this Bulletin provides a timely summary of the biology and habitat requirements of this game bird, which is primarily associated with semi-natural Scots pine forests. The structure of the forest is important, as is the presence of blaeberry both directly as food for the chicks and for supporting the many insects upon which the young also feed. Impacts of other environmental factors on Capercaillie numbers are discussed.
