Bird Fair 2018

This year’s Bird Fair was the 30th Anniversary and this year’s project was to create a haven for Argentina’s Flamingos.

My favourite part of the weekend was the bird ringing stand and I was lucky to release a Tree Creeper.

There were lots of celebrities at the fair, Nigel Marvin helped us when doing a bug hunt.  We also did some pond dipping and Nick Baker gave an informative talk about pond life.  Bill Oddie and Mike Dilger were funny when on stage doing bird pointless.  Also met Chris Packman, Stephen Moss and Iolo Williams, all were interested in the home made T-Shirts me and my brother made.

We went out in the evening to find some moths and got up early to walk round the hides and saw Opsrey.  Took a walk and found the Red Necked Phalarope at the Goldeneye Hide, though it was distant.  Managed to see 82 different bird species during the weekend of the 115 recorded.

T-Shirts that me and my brother made.
