  • Blog Post: Christmas is coming!

    Blogger: Sarah Green Stuck for Christmas ideas? Finding the shopping season a bit much and feel a need to get away from it all? Why not support wildlife in the East through supporting RSPB Minsmere’s corporate members? Tala is a long established kitchenware brand selling pretty vintage...
  • Blog Post: Get your Christmas bargains here!

    It’s taken me ages to get into the festive spirit this year. Usually I’ve got all my presents bought, cards written and posted, and decorations up and sparkling by now, but this year I’m completely behind. It just really doesn’t feel like Christmas is only 12 sleeps away! If...
  • Blog Post: Stuck for Christmas gift ideas? Take a look at what some of Operation Turtle Dove’s supporters have to offer... by Hayley New

    Many of us will be singing harmoniously, or not in my case, about two turtle doves this Christmas – here are some ways you can contribute to saving them and get a few more names crossed off of this years shopping list! The turtle dove has faced such steep declines in the UK, 85% between 1995...
  • Blog Post: The Christmas dove of peace

    Here is the second guest blog by author, naturalist and Nature's Home contributor, Mark Cocker as the countdown to Christmas begins. You can read Mark's first blog here Like fallen angels, they scuttle round your feet at the railway station or the park bench in most cities. They’re pigeons...
  • Blog Post: Birds at Christmas

    I'm delighted to be able to present the first of two guest blogs by Mark Cocker, author of Nature's Home's "Book of the issue", Birds and People (see page 84). Mark also writes about starlings in the current issue. Enjoy. Christmas is looming now with all its attendant concern...
  • Blog Post: Give nature a helping hand this Christmas

    With Christmas rapidly sneaking up on us – are you stuck for ideas for those last one or two great Christmas gifts? Or perhaps you have those annoying relatives who never know what they want, but say it has to be something useful – I say ‘annoying’, although that is usually my...
  • Blog Post: 2011 - what a great year for kites

    2011 has been an amazing year for the Aberdeen Red Kites and we all feel so lucky to be able to work with such a brilliant bird. Another record breaking year for breeding locally and nationally (for the whole story have a look here ), and kites becoming a more common sight all over the north east of...
  • Blog Post: A green Christmas

    There's a definite chill in the air, there's fairy lights twinkling from house windows wherever you look, and our office looks like a tinsel bomb has gone off right in the middle. It can mean only one thing - Christmas is nearly here! It's the time for over eating, over spending and general...
  • Blog Post: Let the 12 Days of Christmas Begin...

    Blogger: Adam Murray, Communications Officer Ahh the joys of collecting old encyclopaedias and natural world books (I know I am a chic geek) as well as the speed of Wikipedia. I was completely unaware that the Twelve Days of Christmas started on Christmas Day. Not only that but there are variations...
  • Blog Post: 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...
  • Blog Post: Christmas shopping worth while

    With more and more people filling the shops to rush out for a last-minute Christmas pressie (or if you’re anything like me, you won’t have even started) I do often wonder about all the millions of pounds that we spend each year on gifts for our loved ones, friends and family. In a time of...
  • Blog Post: 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...
  • Blog Post: Deck the halls with boughs of holly

    Blogger: Rachael Murray, Media Officer It’s an age-old tradition – using fresh holly branches to adorn your table and give your home a festive look – but don’t forget to leave enough out there for our wildlife this winter! Holly is a valuable source of food and shelter...
  • Blog Post: The Great Escape!

    I walked into work this morning fresh with thoughts about a new year, a new calendar and new adventures. It’s amazing how therapeutic a clean slate is. It’s the 2 January and heading back to work feels the same, but different! It’s funny how we take to a new year, with renewed enthusiasm...
  • Blog Post: From Everyone at RSPB in the East

    MERRY CHRISTMAS - see you on your Festive Seasonal Walk out and about at our reserves!
  • Blog Post: 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...

  • Blog Post: Pear trees not just for partridges

    Blogger: Adam Murray, Communication Officer You may find yourself humming the classic Christmas line about a partridge in a pear tree this festive season, but pear trees can be a great gift for all sorts of other wildlife too. We are encouraging people to think about planting pear trees now...
  • Blog Post: My So-Called Community Fundraising Life

    Blogger: Gena Correale Wardle, Community Fundraising Officer Being a Community Fundraiser is a varied life. When I tell people I am a ‘fundraiser’ they either think I do door-to-door fundraising with a clip board and a puppy-dog look in my eye, or that I sit behind a desk writing grant...
