It's hip to be a birdwatcher

Now, according to the Telegraph, over 6 million people confess to a 'bit of birdwatching' every couple of weeks or so. As a past-time it now outstrips Fishing (or is it angling) for the number of people involved. So for those of you going to the annual Birdwatching Fair at Rutland this weekend - beware. Organisers are expecting all previous attendance records to be smashed (but not if this rain continues!) and also the amount of money spent to increase - last year it was calculated at approximately £1M per day!

The BTO will have three stands at the Fair - it's general BTO Members stand, one for Garden Birdwatch and another for WeBS. Please take a moment to chat if you are passing.
