Now is the time to bring our awareness back to the natural world around us, to go outside, to explore – and to appreciate the life that’s there. With Scandinavian traditions in mind, we take a refreshing stroll on a spring day and find all our senses are stimulated. Our love of birds and flowers cajole creative ideas out of hibernation and on to these pages: paper feather decorations, anyone? And our desire to be more green-fingered starts us asking questions about what we’d like to grow. Illustration by Melvyn Evans, from The Art of Mindful Birdwatching by Claire Thompson.

a fine plumage collection

“HOPE IS THE THING WITH FEATHERS THAT PERCHES IN THE SOUL” Emily Dickinson Step 1 Gather together your tools: a pair or two of sharp paper scissors, a small pair of pliers, white floral wire, craft glue to stick the floral wire to the paper, a paintbrush and a piece of white tissue paper. Step 2 Use both sheets of feathers on pages 12 and 15 (for the front and reverse of each feather). Cut out all the feathers. Ensure you use nice sharp scissors to get clean edges. You may find it easier to roughly cut out each feather first. Step 3 Place the front and reverse of one feather on your table. Pour a little glue into a bowl and, using a paintbrush, paint one of your feathers with the glue. Step 4 Using the pliers,…

tips for cutting the feathers

TAPHERE FOR YOUR PATTERNED PAPERS 1. Print the feather templates onto paper and cut out. These are your templates to trace onto the patterned paper (printable from the icon below); use paper rather than card otherwise it can be difficult to get your pen in close to trace the delicate edges. 2. Put your template on the front of the paper to get a good pattern placement on your feather. Then draw a rough outline about a centimetre away from the template on the front and cut this out. This will help you to position the feather where you want it without having to draw on the front of the paper. 3. Experiment with different ways of positioning the templates on the pattern paper, placing them at different angles to achieve different pattern…

the mindgus at of bird watching

A free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wing in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky. Caged Bird Maya Angelou (1928–2014) Mindful birdwatching is setting aside knowledge, labels and expectations while paying full attention – moment by moment and non-judgementally – to our direct experience of birds. It doesn’t depend on equipment or particular skills. It’s simply looking, listening and being curious about life. It’s developing a habit of really noticing birds – their colours, their sounds, their flight patterns and their behaviours. It’s becoming aware of how watching and listening to them makes us feel. Moreover, being mindful increases the quality and frequency of our encounters with birds. In essence, mindful birdwatching is best described…


I am a twitcher. There, I’ve said it. I’ve confessed. Do I feel better? No. Why would I? I know you’ll be judging me. It’s not cool. Not urban. Not metrosexual or arty or down-with-da-kidz. I’m not watching an installation of a dead cow in a white gallery in Soho, I’m watching blue tits nesting in a suburban magnolia. I’m not – OK, you get it. Birds. I’ll watch anything. A thrush, her throat speckled and pulsing, warbling in the dawn light. A buzzard gliding on a hot air current rising from the city. An opportunistic crow feasting on roadkill. I like – well, do you want to know what I like best? An avocet. When I was very small my father brought me home an avocet. It was a picture,…
