  • Blog Post: Remember, remember ...?

    In case it has been erased from your memory or you are in desperate denial about the turning of the seasons, there is no escaping that it is bonfire night this weekend! The sky will be adorned with that healthy orange glow of bonfires and fireworks and we will all be testing out our vocal chords...
  • Blog Post: Computer says 'No'....

    Blogger - Aggie Rothon I’ve been on the phone for thirty minutes. At some point between last Thursday and today my computer has taken one of my files, chewed it up and spat it out, but without telling me why. I don’t understand what caused this sudden rage and neither it seems does the...
  • Blog Post: Nature and Farming Judgement Day on 29 June?

    Blogger - Simon Tonkin, Senior Farmland Conservation Officer The signs from the EU in the last few days are that the President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, is considering major cuts to pillar two of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). An essential fund that amongst other...
  • Blog Post: Feisty friend

    Have you ever had that experience when you get up really early in the morning, it’s still dark and no-one else is awake? For a short time, while the sky is magical with wispy waves of star glitter, you could be the only person on the planet. I used to get this feeling when I was younger and I had...
  • Blog Post: Farming fuming

    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...
  • Blog Post: The Ghosts of the Hickling highway

    Blogger: Becky Ingham, Face to Face Team Manager I have a white car, occasionally. Strictly speaking, for the 2 days a month after cleaning it. In between times it reverts to its traditional Norfolk winter plumage of muddy brown, with odd insults scrawled in the back. This is the downside of life...
  • 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: Poetry in Motion - Breaking News!

    The RSPB and The Rialto are thrilled to announced today the winner of their first ever poetry competition as Pat Winslow with her poem entitled, 'East Sabino Sunrise Circle – the visit'. The entries came in from all over the world, astounding the RSPB and The Rialto in their quest to...
  • 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: Today's the day the Teddy Bears have their picnic...

    Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Manager Last night was my second appearance onto BBC Radio Norfolk to fill in for our local celebrity farmer Chris Skinner! I love doing these slots, they really are a lot of fun and although the sick feeling in my tummy builds up from about 3 hours before, it soon...
  • 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: Farming that's a taste of the good life

    Blogger: Aggie Rothon, Communications Officer I remember picking up our Christmas turkey one year. I was only small, but I can still recall the slow drive up a rain sodden path following signs for ‘Norfolk Black turkeys.’ A few sheep grazed in the fields to the left, bundled up in their...
  • Blog Post: Volunteering has got me closer to nature

    Studying BSc Ecology at UEA and volunteering in the RSPB’s communications team are completely different, yet so similar – the bottom line being conservation, conservation, conservation. The past year, I have not only had the closest nature experiences of my life, but have learnt why conserving...
