  • Blog Post: 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...
  • 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: 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...
  • Blog Post: 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! ...
  • Blog Post: 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...
  • 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!

  • Blog Post: The jigsaw puzzle of life

    Blogger: Communications Officer Aggie Rothon I am incredibly lucky to live where I do. If I leave my house in any direction I can always find myself surrounded by the magnificence of nature. So I’m not missing out, now that the nights are drawing in and I have had to reroute my after-work dog...
  • Blog Post: 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...
  • Blog Post: Let's Make Badgers Count!

    It comes as no surprise to me that the recent results of the RSPB’s Make You Nature Count survey showed that badgers were the least spotted mammal in gardens across the east. They are a secretive lot it seems, their general demeanour never described more eloquently than by Kenneth Grahame in his...

  • Blog Post: Diggers, ducklings and decadence

    Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Manager Finding inspiration can come from the most unusual places! It’s not often that i’m stumped for words, but sometimes, when you’re having ‘one of those days’ it’s not easy to write an exciting piece of prose or come up with...
  • Blog Post: 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...
