A visit to the Birdfair at Rutland Water

I managed to get along to this yesterday, and despite a hiccup of my backpack managing to deposit it's cargo of walking boots somewhere while on the motorbike, the rest of the trip went much more smoothly. I met up with a friend and we travelled down in the car.

I'd not been to the Fair before and the weather was beautiful...if a bit too hot in those marquees! I especially enjoyed watching the "Artists at Work", where renowned artists added a bird to the board and thus incorporating lots of different styles in one place, a fantastic idea and fascinating to watch. We also enjoyed a talk from Simon King, naturalist and broadcaster. A great day out!
