I wanted to make the point about how we need to view the ordinary - like robins - as extraordinary, because unless we see them as special or sacred (whatever that means to you) then I don't think we will do enough to protect the natural world. It is the ordinary that we live with, that colours everyday, let's treasure it.


  1. Thank you, Mary, yes, - that's how it is. Best wishes for your work throughout the coming year.

  2. Thank you Nicola - happy Christmas to you and your family.
