Birdfair 2018

Once again we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at our stand at the annual British Birdwatching Fair! The British Birdwatching Fair is co-sponsored by Naturetrek and held at Rutland Water from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th August (inclusive). We also invite you to join us for a drink and nibbles on Saturday 18th August at 4.30pm.

As usual at the Birdfair, each day Naturetrek staff and tour leaders will be giving illustrated presentations in the newly named lecture marquees (‘Osprey’, ‘Harrier’ and 'Hobby'), as detailed below. Please do join us in our usual spot in marquee 6, stand 38/39/40. Many of our staff and tour leaders will be attending, including Andy Tucker, Paul Stanbury, Tim Melling, Kerrie Porteous, David Phillips, Tom Mabbett, Rajan Jolly, Georgie Head and Alison Steel.

We will be sending you our 2019 brochure during the week of 13th August, so that you have your copy prior to the Birdfair. We look forward to seeing you there!
