The migrant birds illegally shot in Malta
Blog by Tara Proud, RSPB Species Recovery Officer Each spring thousands of migrant birds cross Malta on their way to breeding grounds in Europe, and some of them even choose the UK as their summer home. In Malta, hunting birds is a cultural tradition, and although there are laws in place to govern...

Naaarrfolk and lovin' it!
I’ve read all the jokes, heard all the parody songs and seen all of the comedy sketches. People love to make fun of us East Anglians! My teachers used to say that people who take the mickey out of you are simply jealous, and I can certainly believe that. I would envy people who lived here if I...

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...

Where have all the bugs gone?
Blogger: Aggie Rothon, Communications Officer It’s suddenly gone cold hasn’t it? It only seems like yesterday that we were rushing outside in shorts and t-shirts but now the mornings have that smoky grey autumnal quality and the evenings have a bite to them. I rather like it, being fond...

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...

"I'm bored Mum" Not any more! It's your top 3 cool things to do in the summer hols.
Blogger: Kate Blincoe The initial euphoria of not having to get everyone out of the door bright and early has worn off. The days are long and the weather is at best changeable. Keeping the brood occupied can seem like a challenging task, but never fear, here is your stay sane guide to the summer hols...

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...

101 things to do with a bucket
Blogger: Gena Correale-Wardle A little while ago we asked our Twitter followers for some ideas of things you could do with a bucket. Some very good and strange answers came back – bury it and make it into a stag beetle home; use it as a coal scuttle and even have it as a makeshift toilet! The...

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...

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...

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...

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...

The GREAT outdoors
Blogger: Gena Correale-Wardle, Community Fundraising Officer Today is my last day before a week off work and I am looking forward to getting out and about in the next 9 days. I’m off to London for a couple of days on Sunday and am looking forward to sitting in Greenwich park for the very first...

terning life on its head
Blogger - Erica Howe, Communications Manager I am a self-confessed list girl. I make lists for all kinds of things. My day at work, food shopping, chores, going on holiday. Post-it notes are now a handbag staple. This then becomes a pretty futile exercise because I have so many of them that I don't...

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...

Running, Cycling and Stepping up for Nature
Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Manager It was full of highs and lows, sweat, smiles and cheers, but we made it! The EastCoasters completed their relay from RSPB Minsmere to RSPB Titchwell in 10 hours and 45 mins on Sunday 29 May. The weather was kind to us, there was a little breeze blowing but...

Boys and their toys.
Blogger - Janet Moorse, Communications Volunteer We were on holiday in Suffolk last week and I took the family to Minsmere. Obviously the sunshine helped, but what an adventure for my nine and 11 year olds? Pheasants in the car park, sand martins beside the tea rooms, we didn’t need binoculars...
