RSPB Inspiring Nature Calendar Competition 2021 sponsored by Swarovski

Congratulations to our winners! Find out who won this year's competition and which images will be featured in our 2021 calendar.

Embracing the outdoors

Here at the RSPB, we love to embrace the outdoors. Our beautiful country is an amazing place to live. On our doorsteps are woods and farmland, moors and marshes, cliffs and mountains – including over 200 RSPB reserves. They’re home to an astonishing array of precious but threatened birds and other wildlife.
