Sometimes it's just nice to take time out from our busy lives and enjoy a moment to ourselves.
This image makes me want to grab my favourite book, settle down under one of those trees and get whisked away on an adventure. And with World Book Day on Thursday, I might just do that!
If you haven't got time for a book, let RSPB Images whisk you away with their amazing library of wildlife and landscape photos.
Many of our nature reserves have cafes. And you know what that means: a scenic walk, a cup of coffee and a slice of something nice. Weekends don't get much better than this. Why not treat yourself - or someone you love? Go on - you know you want to!
What's the verdict, then: is this shag from our image library by Andy Hay laughing, yawning or yelling? And which of these three are you doing today?
At this time of year, millions of birds across the country will be house hunting, ready to set up home and raise a family in the spring. So if you’ve never built a nest box before, why not give it a go this weekend - after all, it is National Nest Box Week!
There’s a bewildering array of different nest box designs out there, so how do you know which one to choose? Well, this really depends on what species of bird you want to attract.
Read our online guide and you'll find out everything you need to know about what nest box to choose and how to make one, as well as where to site it.
If you fancy having a go at making a box yourself, but think you
might need someone on hand to help, why not pop along to one of our
reserves this weekend and take part in a National Nest Box Week event –
there are lots taking place up and down the country.
If your carpentry skills aren’t up to much, never fear, we’re offering 10% off all ready-made nest boxes from our online shop until 22 February and a FREE nest box if you become a member before 31 March – so there’s never been a better time to help your garden birds set up home.Not only will you be making a real difference to garden birds by
providing a safe place for them to rear their young, putting up a
nest box means you’ll also be able to see birds up close and get a
really great insight into their lives.
If you see any odd behaviour or peculiar goings on in your new nest box, let us know - we’d love to hear your stories and might just have the answer!
Once upon a time, or so the story goes, there lived a handsome prince in an enchanted kingdom.
One day a wicked witch cast a spell on the Prince, turning him into a frog.
Only true love's kiss could reverse the spell...
... so pucker up ladies!
You can find this photo, as well as other (slightly more traditional!) images of romance in nature in our image library.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
