  • Sneak preview of the next Birds magazine

    Your February-April Birds magazine is on its way to you - the first copies start mailing today, so, if you are a member, look out for your copy over the next 10 days or so. In the meantime, here's a little sneak preview of what you'll be seeing in the mag.

    Do let us know what you think, which bits of the magazine you liked and what got you thinking - and inspired to get out and enjoy wildlife, or to step up for nature - as we look forward to the arrival of spring. Judging by the bulbs coming up in my garden and the singing song thrush and coal tit I heard this morning before coming to work, nature thinks that spring is here already.
