December, 2011


We're about more than just birds (though obviously we like them a lot).

Notes on nature

We love nature... from every little bug on a blade of grass to birds, butterflies, otters and oaks!
  • This weekend...looking forward

    As we get ready to wave the year goodbye, we hope that whatever you're up to this weekend you enjoy the tail end of 2011 and are looking forward to new beginnings.

    As well as celebrating a new year, this weekend get your creative juices flowing with your inventive captions for this camera-shy red squirrel. I look forward to your great suggestions in the comments below.

    I don't think there's much else I can add to this cute photo of a robin by Mark Sisson except to say that I hope you've all had a lovely Christmas.

  • This weekend... have a merry Christmas!

     You don't need to be told what to do this weekend...! But if you're after advice on how to give your garden visitors a festive treat, we have everything you need to know about feeding birds.

    Merry Christmas from the Notes on Nature team.
