THIS stunning image of the sun setting over RSPB Arne has been released by the charity to brighten up online meetings.

Fifteen images of RSPB nature reserves have been released for use as backgrounds in Zoom meetings.

RSPB deputy engagement director Nic Scothern said: "Over the last few weeks many of us have had limited or no access to the outdoors, making the outdoors more precious to us than ever.

"By sharing these beautiful images, we hope to give people a way to make nature part of their virtual social life and recreate some of that sense of peace that comes from a natural setting."

The charity says it wants everyone who has been stuck at home to be able to enjoy their "nature fix" and images, other than the Arne reserve, include RSPB Lake Vyrnwy and RSPB Fowlmere.

Simply share a screen grab once downloaded using the hashtag #NaturePhotoBomb to celebrate nature and the outdoors – even if you have to stay at home.

Mr Scothern said: "Are you settling in for a team meeting? Try out an awe-inspiring snow-capped Ben Griam.

"Or if you’re about to sit down for a virtual tea with your parents, why not bask in the peaceful glow of mist rising off the reedbed at Minsmere?

"Let us know what you come up with using the hashtag #NaturePhotoBomb, and we look forward to welcoming you to the reserves in person once they reopen.”
