Alex Horne enteraining the Birdfair crowd
(thanks John for the photo!)
Myself, John and my Dad visited the British Birdfair yesterday at Rutland Water, and for once it was an enjoyable experience.
Highlights of the day included meeting comedian Alex Horne( who was doing a shorten version of his excellent live show on Birdwatching Watching),chatting to BBC "One Show" David Lindo about Urban Birding, collecting the new Leicestershire and Rutland Bird Avifauna and Bird report from the LROS stand, playing football with the ORCA team(Whale Madrid) and meeting new and old friends at the social birding event of the year.
My Dad was also happy because he spent loads of money on a new camera (Canon D5) and got a good deal, £400 off the usual price!!
