  • Blog Post: All aboard...

    As i pulled into the quayside there was a strong coastal smell. Rich, salty seaweed, damp wood from the pier, and pungent shellfish remains from the cockle van parked up at a jaunty angle. The enigmatic herring gull soundtrack was faint on this particular morning, but it was there none the less. This...
  • Blog Post: Step Up - the time is NOW!

    Good afternoon! I hope that this post finds you full of the joys of Spring. The blue tits are nest prospecting, the spring bulbs are coming alive and those thermal gloves are getting that little bit too warm to wear. But if you happened to have got out of the wrong side of bed this morning, maybe...
  • Blog Post: Frozen Planet

    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...
  • Blog Post: 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...
  • Blog Post: RSPB announces plans for a wind turbine at its HQ

    Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Officer It feels almost paradoxical that something so clinical in appearance, so streamlined and architectural can evoke such strong emotions. But, I suppose that’s to be expected when a feature as bold as a wind turbine appears in our landscape. I call it...
  • Blog Post: Think squirrels, think nuts.

    Headlines, tweets and status updates. Forty-five characters to tell everyone what's on your mind. For someone that is a fan of a nice quote, like me, nothing can be more addictive. This particular quote, from my friend Tom's facebook page made me laugh, even though I think he may well have borrowed...
  • Blog Post: Confronting the hard facts of Hard Rain

    Oiled bird, credit: D.Rodrigues / UNEP / Still Pictures I’ve got a framed photo in my bedroom and one of my friends has got the exact same one on the shelf in his kitchen. The photo is of a Montagu’s harrier, the centre of a wildlife watching project that I worked on, gliding...
  • Blog Post: I like big (water) butts and I cannot lie

    Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Officer. As I stood in the queue to make my emergency purchase last week, the shop assistant declared, “This is the most umbrellas we’ve sold in months.” With soggy feet, wrinkly toes, and less-than-glamorous, damp hair, I was beginning to seriously...

  • Blog Post: Wanderings abroad

    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...
  • Blog Post: 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...
  • Blog Post: The art of the countryside

    Blogger: Laura White. PA to Public Affairs Manager I love impressionism, Claude Monets capturing of the light around him was so accurate that scientists are now using his paintings to work out the composition of gases in the atmosphere at the time he was painting. I wish I was blessed with a talent...
