Autumn days when the grass is jewelled ....
It was the summer equinox over the weekend, on the 22 September. It is a time of year that makes me feel both happy and sad at the same time. The sun, pitched perfectly against a clean, crisp, blue sky, watching down on us from its highest position gives me a real boost. A natural energy shot! But, at...

Militant bird feeding?
Blogger - Erica Howe I’m house sitting at the moment while our friends are off on a holiday of a lifetime! It sounds wonderful doesn’t it? I’ve left the city, living in the Norfolk countryside, in a bigger house with a garden – sounds like a holiday itself? Well, sort of! ...

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...

Eat food – save nature!
Blogger - Gena Correale-Wardle, Community Fundraising Officer Here in the RSPB office we love our food. Cake is a regular fixture during the week and lunchtimes come with a melee of delicious smells emanating from the kitchen as people reheat their leftover dinners. There are a lot of fine bakers...

Slowly slowly catch a monkey
Blogger: Aggie Rothon, Communications Officer Apparently we as a nation put on, on average, five pounds over Christmas. That’s quite impressive, even taking in to account the super size me tins of Quality Street sold everywhere pre-Christmas. The BBC seems to have taken this bit of information...

Walking in a Winter Wonderland
Blogger - Communications Manager, Erica Howe I had to scrape ice off my car windscreen the other morning! Ok, so that’s hardly news I know, but I can’t believe we nearly made it to the end of November without having so much as a light frost. I live in the city so perhaps this isn’t...

Childhood Heroes and Holiday Ideas
Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Manager As an adult it's hard to believe that you can still be star struck! I remember when I was a youngster and I'd go to see Norwich City play, the players always seemed so ... famous! I suppose I thought that as an adult you'd grow out of that excitement...

Getting cold - need some food?
Blogger: Adam Murray, Communications Officer We all make excuses right? There is always a reason why or why not. That is why our To Do lists around the house never quite get done, like putting the safety catches on the doors or even doing that bit of craetive art work or reading that heavy but intellectual...

Feed the Birds Day - all year round
Blogger: Janet Moorse, Volunteer in the Communications Team Whilst walking down the garden with the grass cuttings. My shadow was intersected by another fast moving shadow. I looked up to see a sparrowhawk over head. He whizzed past, then came to a standstill above the trees, obviously eyeing up...

big knit cardigans, scarves, winter boots and snuggly jumpers
Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Manager It’s not often I go clothes shopping. No really! But, last weekend I braved the crowds and the shops and headed for the high street. I needed to buy some shorts. Now I know it’s not exactly the height of summer, but I just couldn’t find...

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...

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...

Rocking robin knocked off the top spot!
Some things about Christmas are certain, aren’t they? I will put on a few extra pounds, I will have to fake happy on opening a random gift and dozens of robins will come fluttering through my letterbox making me feel guilty that I haven’t remembered to post my Christmas cards. Well maybe...
