Each night the starling spectacular plays out a different performance – sometimes with a sunset backdrop, other times the waterfall whoosh as the birds fall into the reeds. But last night and last week, with groups from PTES we placed ourselves […]

In a hide at the magical RSPB Rye Meads with children, parents & teachers from Hertingfordbury Primary School, we watch the kingfisher fly to the nestbank to feed its young. Over the past […]

A moving drama, the sight and sound of a million-strong starling murmuration above your heads is one of UK’s most incredible wild spectaculars. The sudden darkened skies, continually morphing shapes and sheer mass create a visual extravaganza. But the soundscape is beautiful too –  a million soft and soothing wingbeats overhead, the waterfall whoosh as […]

Swathes of snowdrops cascade through the sunlit Rococo Gardens, flowing down past the lake and on to carpet the woodlands below.
