Get Active: volunteer, experience, connect with the natural world

We're so sad to hear the news about Paul O'Grady's passing.  He did so much for people and animals, both in Britain and around the world.  He was a true gentleman, compassion, kind, caring and funny.  All our thoughts are with his family, people and animals, his friends and of course everyone at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.  They have set up a Tribute Fund for Paul O'Grady which you can donate to here.  Rest in peace, Paul, and thank you for all you did to bring animals to us on our screens and for all you did for them.  You will be so missed.

Getting the kids involved in nature - try the RSPB's My RSPB Nature Clipboard

Posted on


If you're wanting to get the kids out and about and away from all their computer screens etc - take a look at the  My RSPB Nature Clipboard from Amazon .

You can treat them to this from Amazon for just £6.36 at the moment.   Within the 32 pages, you'll find plenty of ways to interest them in wildlife and the great outdoors.

The book is for 7 to 10 year olds (the RSPB say 7 to 12 year olds),.

Whether you have a balcony, a lawn or anything in between, there are activities and tips to transform your local area into a home for wildlife - which will give the kids plenty to look for and at.

There are instructions to make bird and butterfly feeders, a minibeast hotel or window box garden, and how to study insects, take a night walk and make a footprint trap.

Outside, you can use the spotter sheets to identify plants, animal tracks, birds and more, and then record them.

This is a great way to get kids involved in nature.  They are her future guardians, but there's no reason why they can't start now with a little encouragement!

Eryl Nash is the author and Hannah Tolson is the illustrator.  The review so far (the book was only published in April 2108) have been terrific.
