Our Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) membership cards for the next year arrived today, and RSPB seems to have listened to us!
We are joint members and last year I complained on this blog that one of the cards portrayed a water vole, very sweet but not what RSPB should focus on.
This reflected RSPB’s twee and unfortunate new name for Birds magazine, Nature’s Home, and its new slogan ‘Giving nature a home’.
This year our cards are entirely birds. One is of goldfinches, which frequent our garden,
and the other a black grouse (reminding me of a cold May morning in 2007 watching a lek in the North Pennines mist).
What’s on your card? It would be interesting to know if there is a range of pictures for the cards and if someone took a decision to send us birds in view of my concern. If so, thank you RSPB for reading my blog and for acting on it.
