The largest member of the grouse family, the Capercail- lie are almost 3 feet in length. They became extinct in Great Britain by 1785 due to over-hunting and forest clearing. In 1830 they were reintroduced to Britain with birds from Sweden. By the mid 20th century their numbers were back up in the tens of thousands but today they are again in danger of extinction in Britain.
