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!

Monday's Magic Moment: we have lift-off!

Have you enjoyed the sunshine we've had lately? Our butterflies certainly have, and it's great to see them making a comeback after an atrocious time last year.

Our friends at Butterfly Conservation are running their Big Butterfly Count survey until 11 August, so there's still plenty of time for you to take part.

This is a silver-washed fritillary, a big orange beastie which loves to nectar on thistles and brambles, amongst other things.

This gorgeous photo was taken by Richard Revels and is part of our RSPB Images library.
