They're calling it the international wildlife event of the year. And it's taking place this weekend, so here's your chance to get involved.

From the 21st - 23rd August Rutland Water Nature Reserve is hosting an amazing event that brings together a wide range of conservation projects, hundreds of stalls, events, lectures, key speakers and bird fanatics from all over. Birdfair regulars Chris Packham, Nick Baker, Martin Hughes-Games and Simon King will be hosting the weekend alongside a number of other well known names. You will have the opportunity to browse exhibitions, learn from experts, listen in to interesting talks and explore a fantastic range of stalls that sell all sorts of goodies from clothing and jewellery to arts and photography, camera equipment, binoculars and bird food!

Rutland Water is a really important reserve for a range of birdlife and is home to more than 25,000 waterfowl. There is a great variety of habitats across the 1000 acre reserve, and a number of special areas to view the wildlife from. Rutland Water has an ongoing calendar of events and activities to keep all ages busy and interested. The Birdfair is hugely popular with visitors and has now been running for 27 years. It promises to be bigger and better than ever before, so don't miss out!
