I know what you did last Summer [Holidays]...
Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Officer ...If it was anything like me it was probably moaning a little that the weather wasn't like how I used to remember it was when I was a kid. Do you remember what it was like in those heady care free days/daze? I can remember the instructions vividly...

Kangaroos in Norfolk
Blogger: Rachel Frain, Fundraising Administrator Recently I was lucky enough to spend the day outdoors in beautiful surroundings with a really cool bunch of five year olds. I say I was lucky because my day-to-day job is as an administrator at the RSPB. This usually sees me office bound, stuck behind...

Are you ready to take on the Wild Zone at Minsmere?
Blogger: Kate Blincoe, Communications Manager Here is my confession. I work for the RSPB yet I have not been to a nature reserve in my leisure time for over three years. Let me clarify a few things: I have not lost my passion for enjoying wildlife in stunning locations. I have not had a bad accident...

101 things to do with a bucket
Blogger: Gena Correale-Wardle A little while ago we asked our Twitter followers for some ideas of things you could do with a bucket. Some very good and strange answers came back – bury it and make it into a stag beetle home; use it as a coal scuttle and even have it as a makeshift toilet! The...

A Little Mining Bee Adventure with Tommy
Blogger: Emily Field, RSPB Volunteer & Farmer Alliance Project Officer The other day was walking home from school with Tommy (age 5) whinging in the usual way "come on Tommy what's keeping you?” he replied "I'm looking at the bees going into the ground mum!" ...

Raising a Brood
Blogger: Kate Blincoe Parenthood can feel complicated at times. We become circus skills experts with all that plate spinning, juggling and tightrope walking as we try to do the best thing for our families whilst managing limited time and money. Having just returned to work following maternity leave...

Time in the bank
Blogger: Janet Moorse, Communications Team Volunteer I am not in a position to work full time, needing to be around for my kids and finding myself 100 miles from grandparents and family baby-sitters. But I still want to keep my brain from stagnating and have volunteered my time over the past few years...

Youthful Urban Birding
Blogger: Steve Rowland, Public Affairs Manager I passed a pleasant 50 minutes the other day on a long train journey listening to one of the Conference Calls put together by Charlie Moores on his Talking Naturally blog. In these Charlie gets a bunch of birders together on a conference call and they...

When was the last time you made a den?
Blogger: Aggie Rothon, Communications Officer ‘Life’s too short to stuff a mushroom’ Shirley Conran famously said. I couldn’t agree more Shirley, but it’s not too short to ice a cupcake or twenty. In fact it took me a whole morning of craning over the kitchen counter...

What can we do about the riots?
Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Manager This week, I’ve been working on an incredible RSPB project. Our Minsmere reserve is having a bit of a make-over and in the new year we will have a fantastic, dedicated learning centre for youngsters and families to come and be inspired about nature...

Blogger - Erica Howe, Communications Manager It’s been a shocking week to say the least! And it’s only Tuesday! The RSPB announced today that the EU are planning to sever a rather important leg from our Common Agricultural Policy. That all sounds rather jargonny I know so i’ll...

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...

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

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...

There's no need to be part of the X Box generation
Apparently it took me ages to say my first word, but when I did eventually decide to make myself heard I pronounced 'horse' with such clarity that it took my mum aback. I think the fact that I could look out on to a stable yard from my cot must have had something to do with it. Strange too that...
