Just a quick note to say that under the government's employee retention scheme i will no longer be posting either here or on our social media accounts for the foreseeable future. I'm really sorry that I will not be able to continue sharing news from my garden and daily walks, or from the wonderful Minsmere staff and volunteers.
We will, of course, be back once current restrictions are lifted and Minsmere is able to repoen.
In the meantime, please check the RSPB England and RSPB Love Nature Facebook pages and @Natures_voice Twitter account from my national colleagues.
Bye for now, see you soon
Good luck Ian, hope to see you back when it's all calmed down again
