Thought provoking news headlines

On Wednesday the RSPB had a lovely press release about the boost to reed bunting numbers in Cambridgeshire, read all about it here.  Wonderful news, however their headline created a slightly different reaction:

There then followed a rather surreal conversation about giant birds, end of the world and finally into Hollywood disaster movies with some birdy names (Martin Scorsese, Russell Crowe - as the Birdinator - Ryan Gosling and more).  One thing's for sure, it got us talking but probably not how RSPB intended.
If you're interested in our pick of the news you can read it online here.
Or follow our twitter news stream @CountrysideNews which has lots of retweets and tweets of interest that don't quite make the Headlines page.

This week's Weekly has gone to press in two sections, there's the usual CJS Weekly which this week is 19 pages including the April Training Calendar as well as all the jobs, 50 this week of which 42 came direct to CJS plus 18 volunteer placements.  However the larger section this week is CJS Focus on Volunteering, 30 pages.  It will be online for non-subscribers on Monday so watch out for announcements.
