Ruddy Turnstone a true global bird this amazing traveler can turn up just about anywhere!

Wonderful to hear from our great friend Tim Appleton, you know THE Bird Fair bloke and we are looking forward to supporting "Global Birding". Here is the message and how to find out more....

Please take a minute to see what we want to achieve: we hope to provide everyone with the opportunity to join us in celebrating some post lockdown freedom; enjoying nature again after what has been such a difficult year across the globe.

We invite you and your families, friends, neighbours, colleagues and clients to take part in our first event on October 17 and 18 2020. Wherever you are in the world, simply go outside and do what we all love doing - enjoy the birds and nature around us and create a new world record as part of our Global Bird Weekend which we are bringing to you in association with BirdLife International, eBird and Swarovski Optik.

We are Birding Together for Conservation to raise funds for BirdLife International's vital appeal to Stop Illegal Bird Trade. We hope you will join us in our fundraising and help to make this a spectacular success.

More people than ever are now appreciating their natural surroundings following the Covid-19 Pandemic lockdowns throughout much of the globe.

Let's all take this opportunity to build on our long standing and trusted relationships with each other and create a better future for our world and the wildlife we share.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested

  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better
