BBF Rutland 2012

17 Aug - I went to the British Birdwatching Fair at Rutland Water today, this year it is in aid of the East Asian Wader flyway, and shorebirds are one of my favourite groups of birds. Some very good lectures, including the Spoon-billed Sandpiper project - and very humourous presentations by Bryan Bland and Bill Oddie. The Art Marquee was as impressive as ever. Heavy thundery showers, and wet underfoot, and no migrant waders seen as water levels very high! Too much money spent on books as usual....
