Being At Home With Birds

Posted Tuesday 27th August 2013 at 23:37 by Green Sandpiper
I've been impressed by the message behind the RSPB's ongoing campaign to 'give birds a home.' Much of the debate surrounding it and the television adverts has polarised opinion, and I can see both sides of the argument.

But the campaign itself got me thinking, again, of what birding gives to me. I may be giving birds a home, but I also get a lot back. Maybe its some primordial instinct to be out in the wild, whilst there's some wild places left, but being outside increasingly seems...

Where have all the birdies gone?

Posted Wednesday 21st August 2013 at 16:02 by jb144

The reserve itself was being prepared for the migrant wader season, with the water level being lowered through a sluice. The famiy of mute swans had successfully reared 5 good- sized cygnets, a great...

New Project: Hooded Plovers.

Posted Saturday 17th August 2013 at 23:44 by Rick and Elis
On Thursday evening we heard from BirdLife Australia that they were happy for us to raise some money on their behalf in support of the Hooded Plover project.
"Volunteers and communities along Australia's southern coastline are working with BirdLife Australia to save the Hooded Plover, one of Australia's most vulnerable bird species, that attempts to raise a family alongside thousands of beach-goers.
