Posted on


The 18th-20th August 2017 is a crucial date in the bird lovers' calendar.  

It's the date for Birdfair, which is an international wildlife event and it's at Rutland Water. 

Birdfair supports Birdlife International and this year, the theme is "Saving Paradise in the Pacific".  The theme concentrates on seabirds such as Rapa shearwater, white bellied storm petrol and the Rapa fruit dove.  In 2016, the event raised £350,000 to support international conservation.  That's amazing, in just a couple of days! 

So what will you find at Birdfair?   

  • Hundreds of stands from more than 80 countries, with everything from binoculars to wildlife holidays, birdfood, outdoor clothing, books and more!
  • Over 70 wildlife artists and photographers
  • Over 180 talks and events during the weekend, many hostsed by famous wildlife personalities, including Bill Oddie, Stpehen Moss, Mark Carwardine, David Lindo, Chris Packham, Steve Backshall, Simon King and others
  • Debates concerning wildlife issues
  • Activities for kids throughout the 3 days
