Why I love Copenhagan
That’s it – I'm going to to learn Danish. On a sliding scale, how easy do you think that will be? I gave it some thought last night and noted the pros and cons. Amongst the pros: 1) some Danish words sound remarkably like our own; mor means mum. 2) the Danish language seems to...

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...

Fifteen is the new thirty!
Do you know what? I've completely forgotten what it's like to be fifteen all over again! This week, we've been joined by Ellen and Dylan who are on work experience from school. They have certainly made me feel old! But, they have both been lovely and we have hopefully given them a flavour...

One Summer, Four Reserves, One photo bonanza blog post
Blogger: Carol Miller, Community Fundraising Volunteer based at the Fens Area Office in Swavesey Well what a Summer I’ve had this year. I’ve loved visiting some more of the RSPB’s wonderful nature reserves and being able to get very close to some of Britain’s beautiful birds...

My Patch of Plenty
Blogger: Adam Murray, Communications Officer Six months in and still going strong. I have been here at my desk in Norwich working for the RSPB since January 4th. It is curious how you start to collect the usual shenanigans on your desk even within a short (but happy) six months. The photos of nearest...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Time for Jack Frost
Blogger: Aggie Rothon, Communications Officer Look out, look out, Jack Frost is about! I love the idea that if you glanced out to the fields in the crisp early hours of a January morning you might glimpse a spiky figure darting from tree to tree. Sharply glistening hair do glowing white in the moonlight...

They flew like a stream of black bullets, shadowed against the darkening silver sky. Just as the sea-tide is pulled to and fro by the moon, the starlings swayed and curved above me. Thousands of them, each bird a separate etching in a charcoal coloured cloud of wings. As my car drew away from the traffic...

Bat's the way to do it!
Image: Kevin Simmonds www.wildlifeimagary.co.uk With the nights well and truly drawing in, the cold, crisp autumnal air is biting more and more at our cheeks and it’s the time of year to start thinking about those classic winter comforts. Home-made soup, a roaring fire, big snuggly jumpers and...

Bearded tit image courtesty of Kevin Simmonds, www.wildlifeimagery.co.uk Bearded tits don’t subscribe to the Ronseal approach of ‘does what it says on the tin’ because they are actually neither tits nor bearded. Research places these dainty golden brown birds as the only British...

Falling in love with a sandy carpet ...
Every summer, when I was young, my parents would take me and my brother off camping for a fortnight’s holiday. These camping trips were always carefree and despite the inevitable rainy days stuck in the tent, the middle-of-the-night trip to the loos in my wellies and having to boil our water the...
