You might be surprised to read that our work is far broader than nature reserves and Big Garden Birdwatch. Read more about what else we do.

Natures Home magazine uncovered

Behind the scenes at the RSPB magazine and much much more...
  • Sneak preview of the next Birds magazine...

    The next issue of Birds will start mailing on 6 October, but if you can’t wait that long, here’s a little taster

    of some of the content that Joel, the Birds designer, has put together. We don't want to give too much away though!

    Joel has worked in design all around the world, including many years in the USA (New York State), Canada (where he was born) and India.

    He’s been designing Birds for 12 years now, bringing you the fabulous pictures and layouts that are in the magazine every issue.

    As you can see from the montage above, if you like cranes and cuckoos, you're in for a treat, but there's loads more to look forward to!

    Please do leave a comment about anything to do with the magazine in you're a Birds reader.

    I love getting all the e-mails and letters that you send to the magazine, so let us know what you think and what you've been up to.

  • Welcome to Birds uncovered

    Welcome to the brand new Birds magazine blog.

    My name’s Mark and I’m the Editor (that's me, above, posing for the camera at RSPB headquarters at The Lodge).

    In this blog, I’ll be keeping you up to date with what’s happening with the RSPB’s quarterly magazine, including:

    • Exclusive 'extras' including photos and more about what you’ve read in the magazine
    • Updates from the Birds team and our writers and photographers
    • ‘Behind the scenes’ photos and diaries
    • How the magazine is made
    • Your stories
    • Sneak previews of what’s coming up

    It’s also a chance to let us know what you like about Birds, so do post a comment about what you’ve read, or which photos caught your eye

     - and what inspired you to get out and see it for yourself!

    If you’re not an RSPB member and would like to receive Birds, then why not join the RSPB, support our conservation work and get the magazine?

    Watch this space...

    The Winter issue is about to be printed, but do come back next week for a sneak preview of what’s coming up. We have some great features in the next issue.

    If you’re already a member, you’ll be getting your copy very soon...
