One of the most exciting events of the year, for bird lovers, is the annual British Birdwatching Fair. Every year thousands of people descend on the fair, taking part in its informative seminars and workshops, or merely to enjoy the breathtaking surroundings of the venue and browse through the hundreds of exhibitor stands. But the most important feature of the British Birdwatching Fair, is the organizations it is able to assist, through its fundraising, and in so doing, saves hundreds of birds each year.

The first British Birdwatching Fair was held in 1989, and over the years it has grown in strength and support, welcoming approximately twenty thousand visitors and accommodating more than three hundred exhibitors at the fair. Entrance fees and projects enable the fair to raise funds for conservation organizations and foundations that do outstanding work locally and internationally, saving bird species from extinction, raising awareness and giving many birds a second chance at life. The fair also supports and showcases businesses in the conservation industry, such as eco-tourism establishments, bird products, books and research, equipment and various other initiatives that enhance the life of birds and wildlife as a whole.

This year, the Birdfair will take place from the 21st to the 23rd of August 2009, at the Egleton Nature Reserve in Rutland. A vast variety of exhibitors have confirmed their presence at the Birdfair this year and range from bird food and accessories stalls, bird specialists, booksellers and tourism agencies; to camera and binoculars experts, photographers, artists and charity organizations. This offers visitors an extensive range of products and information throughout the fair. Facilities include courtesy busses, disabled parking, campsites, toilet facilities, first aid, bicycle parking and mouth watering catering services.

The Birdfair does not only give visitors the opportunity to indulge in their passion for birds and wildlife, but to explore new territory and ideas by speaking with exhibitors, fellow enthusiasts and workshop hosts. Visitors also have the knowledge that just by attending this spectacular bird watching fair, they are aiding the conservation efforts made by the various foundations. Purchase an item at the auction, listen to seminars or just enjoy the festivities and celebration, either way, the Birdfair should not be missed. It is a fair that will entertain and be enjoyed by all, from avid bird watching fanatics to the curious.
