Get closer to the field and a little more behind the scenes by enjoying a read of the wild experiences, wildlife insights and recollections of staff and volunteers - writers from all over the organisation from our Reserve Officers to our Student placements.

We welcome guest bloggers! If you have something to write home about - whether you've got a trail cam in your garden, or you've been bird watching, or visited one of our nature reserves - if it's to do with Cumbria's wildlife and wild places then we'd love to hear from you!
