Ash trees – the silent victim
The countryside may be awash with crimson red and burnt orange, but a sinister force is creating a dark cloud over Autumn in the UK. Chalara fraxinea (try pronouncing that after a glass of red wine!) is a disease that has decimated Ash tree species throughout Northern Europe, already affecting over...

Another year older and another year ... more terrified!
Blogger - Erica Howe: Communications Officer, RSPB I’m going to let you into a secret. It was my birthday on Saturday. I suppose it’s not really a secret at all, not with the world of social media. I don’t think that there are many things that you can keep under your hat nowadays...

A Falling Star
Blogger: Kate Blincoe, Communications Manager The number crunching has been done and the eagerly awaited results have been announced. The nation wants to know what it means to them. No, not the budget! I mean the annual stock take of our birds; the results of Big Garden Birdwatch 2012 are just out...

Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Manager I’ve got to mention it at some point haven’t I? It’s the tv show that’s captured mine and the nation’s heart. Every Wednesday night I sit glued to my sofa, adamant that I will digest every second of footage beamed to me via...

The good ol' days
I'm gutted. Wagon wheels don't have jam in them anymore. What's occurin'!? In the good ol' days that fake Wheely jam sat tenderly against its pure white mallow like a jumped up jammie dodger. But then in the good ol' days corncrakes croaked from the fields, corn buntings...

Springwatch has Sprung
Blogger - Erica Howe Communications Manager I know this will make me sound old (I can feel the grey hairs sprouting as I type!), but the last few weeks have simply flown by! It feels like only yesterday Spingwatch hit our screens and in the blink of an eye it has been drawn to a close for another...

Running, Cycling and Stepping up for Nature
Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Manager It was full of highs and lows, sweat, smiles and cheers, but we made it! The EastCoasters completed their relay from RSPB Minsmere to RSPB Titchwell in 10 hours and 45 mins on Sunday 29 May. The weather was kind to us, there was a little breeze blowing but...

Boys and their toys.
Blogger - Janet Moorse, Communications Volunteer We were on holiday in Suffolk last week and I took the family to Minsmere. Obviously the sunshine helped, but what an adventure for my nine and 11 year olds? Pheasants in the car park, sand martins beside the tea rooms, we didn’t need binoculars...

A whole lotta chocolate fun!
Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Manager My birthday tends to fall either side of the Easter weekend which, when i was younger and at school was always a real bonus. It meant we had two weeks off, time to play outside and if we were lucky, lots of chocolate! My memories of this school holiday...

Diggers, ducklings and decadence
Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Manager Finding inspiration can come from the most unusual places! It’s not often that i’m stumped for words, but sometimes, when you’re having ‘one of those days’ it’s not easy to write an exciting piece of prose or come up with...

Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Manager Having just returned from a once in a lifetime holiday to New Zealand and Borneo, it’s fair to say, i’m a little bit glum. Holiday blues have set in and I wish I was back there, amongst the mountains of New Zealand, the fresh air, the breath...

Thoughts of home
I bumped in to an old primary school friend the other day. I hadn’t seen her for 17 years but she seemed just as lovely as she had been back then. She reminded me of playtime at my childhood home. Us building rafts together to float on the lake and my mum making us chicken kievs – Lucy’s...

When will I, will I be famous?
Without wanting to put that rather overplayed Bros hit from way back in the day in your head, it's not too far from the truth! As Communications Manager for the RSPB in the East, my role is as varied as a Blue Peter Presenter's and as exciting as a lead part on EastEnders. Ok, so EastEnders may...

Pied wagtail wonder
I’ve had a rather entertaining fortnight. Autumn Watch may be over for another year, but something equally addictive has managed to catch my attention recently. Every time I head out in the crisp winter air for a stroll or I layer up my jumpers, coat and scarf to walk to work, I am followed by...

Don't mind if I do...
I wanted to work for a big organisation that had get-up and go, I wanted to work for someone progressive that cared for the environment. It was the organisation I’ve waited my whole life to work for. All these are reasons why the colleagues sitting around me decided to apply for the jobs they...
