This week sees myself and my other half off to the British Birdwatching Fair at Rutland water. For those who don’t know what this is it is the largest gathering of birdwatchers anywhere in the world over 3 days to visit the talks and stands of hundreds of organisations, there are celebs (Chris Packham and Bill Oddie for sure this year) as well as people most of you won’t have heard of, and it is a great event that raises huge amounts for charity each year.
Off to the British Bird Fair
Our visit to the bird fair (we will be there Thursday to Sunday) is in our roles for the charity Birding For All, we will both be working selling raffle tickets (a list of prizes below), talking to people about what we do and generally socialising with friends and family from all over the world. If you are there plese stop by Marquee 4 stal 12 & 13 (Birding For All & Fatbirder) and say hello, I’d love to meet people who read this blog.

As I said we will be selling raffle tickets (£1 each) and have some great prizes on offer:
- Opticron IS 60 ED WP with HR2 16-48x eyepiece and case
- A Stunning Long-tailed Tit painting by Ian Griffiths
- Collection of signed books.
(I think there may be more as yet unannounced prizes as well!)
Hope to see some of you there.
