Its Birdfair time again, the annual jamboree of all things Birding at Rutland Water. I've been going for years. Why? I'm not really sure. It doesnt seem to change a great deal. Just an excuse for a day out when theres not a huge number of birds to see. The best part is undoubtedly the folks you meet. Friends from just down the road you rarely see and people you've met on expeditions to far away places. Birders have good memories and make good friends even if you dont see them from one Birdfair to the next.
