Going for Gold!
I run the risk of sounding like a small child in the lead up to Christmas but, there are only 18 days left till the Olympics Games! On 27 July, the opening ceremony of the most eagerly anticipated sporting event takes place in London and the whole world will be watching. It’s like throwing your...

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...

Just as the snow had melted ....
I know it'sbeen a mild few days (and you know us, we LOVE talking about the weather!), but it's not staying warm for long. For us, we have the luxury of wearing an extra jumper and cosying up under a blanket, but our garden birds have less protection for the next cold snap hitting home this weekend...

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...

Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou ...
Blogger - Erica Howe, Communications Manager What’s in a name? Ok so that’s a bit of a cliché, but it’s certainly a true sentiment in this instance. The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds is a great name, a name that we all know and love, but really, in all honesty...

You've got that soaring feeling
We often get interesting phone calls at work. Some of the conversations I over hear on the phone are wonderful. I suppose it’s the nature of what we do, but it’s also testament to just how much people are moved by the natural world around us. So moved, that they can’t wait to tell someone...

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...

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside
I’ve often wondered why being near the sea is so captivating. In all the years i’ve lived in Norfolk and holidayed sporadically along the coastline of the UK, the sea has always drawn me in. When the winds blow in from the North Sea and you’re stood on the Norfolk Coast, wrapped up...

Oil spill in the Thames
Sometimes we are reminded just how vulnerable the natural world is and how at mercy of human actions it is at all times. No one could have watched the BP Gulf of Mexico disaster without fearing for marine and bird life. Just yesterday, we had one of those ‘oh no’ moments...
