Have You Checked Out Our Contributions To The First Ever Virtual Bird Fair

Bird Fair usually looks like this, Rutland Water, this year it has gone virtual!

Due to Corona Virus this years event has gone on-line which is of course in some ways so sad as we will miss seeing so many friends from around the world. But the good news is it opens up Bird Fair to a vast global audience and we don't have to miss a thing as all the events are availible for the next three months! This is brilliant, if like us, you just don't have the time to get to see all the amazing talks that take place. Now you can relax and slowly work your way through the list of wonderful lectures as and when you want. Of course we would love you to watch our talks, three in all, two by Ruth and by Alan. Please check out the links below and we hope you enjoy them. Scroll down for lots of fun memories from Bird Fairs past.

Here is Alan's talk on "It's Always Been Birds" a personal history of birdwatching...


Here us Ruth's talk on "Loving Llandudno in Lockdow" a tour of our local patch the Great Orme...


Here is Ruth's talk on Birding in Colombia "Women Birders Flock to Colombia" recounting here recent visit..
