Note on capercaillie
In 2001 an Amendment (Scotland) to the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (Scottish Statutory Instrument 2001 No. 337) moved capercaillie to Schedule 1 of the Act in Scotland and removed the species from Schedule 2. Capercaillie is only found in Scotland.

Schedule 1 Part II

Birds protected by special penalties during the close season which is 1 February to 31 August (21 February to 31August below high water mark) but which may be killed or taken outside this period.

Naturenet gratefully acknowledges the help of Carole Brind AIEEM in researching the protection on capercaillie.
