Well, another few weeks have passed and finally the rain has stopped and the sun is out! Liberty’s garden looks like it has been hit with a paint shop it is so full of colour and down by Sophie’s boat on the River Thames just looks dreamy. (Still probably don’t want to venture in it though!)
<<< A LOVELY LISTEN, FREE PODCAST >>>
Liberty was recently recorded telling the tale of how the Murmuration film came into being as part of a fantastic RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) podcast, and how it felt to be so close to something so incredible. There is also a scientist talking about the rapid starling decline which has been baffling researchers for the past few years… it is really interesting stuff and we hope you enjoy it, here is the link:
Episode 58 http://www.rspb.org.uk/podcasts/naturesvoice.aspx
<<< NATURE'S VOICE >>>
The RSPB is a wonderful organisation, which works tirelessly to protect birds and their habitat, as well as educate the public and fund research into birds and their habitats. This is why Liberty and Sophie decided to nominate them as the charity to which 10% of their Murmuration DVD sales go to, and make a short film with them as part of the Murmuration DVD package. They truly are a passionate, knowledgeable and fun charity, and we encourage you to have a look at their website (after you’ve listened to the podcast!) http://www.rspb.org.uk
Love nature? You’ll love Nature’s Voice, the RSPB’s award-winning podcasts. Each month they’ll bring you features, interviews and news of birds and wildlife, from back gardens to the Sumatran rainforest. If you can’t get enough, try dipping into their back catalogue. They’ll take you soaring with birds of prey, look back over 30 years of Big Garden Birdwatch, offer wildlife gardening advice and hear from celebrity wildlife lovers like Bill Oddie and Kate Humble. To make sure you get each new edition as soon as it’s published, why not become a subscriber? It’s free and simple!
The RSPB podcasts are a great example of the wonderful free and shared knowledge that is available via the internet, just like the TED Talks in a previous blog post. We are keen to promote the collaborative, co-operative and free ethos that is behind ideas such as these; if you have any other fab examples, do let us know
Perhaps send them in on a postcard – in the ‘Inspire Us’ section of this website!
With love, Liberty & Sophie xx
