Come and visit Rohan at this year's Birdfair.

"The Birdwatching Glastonbury"
Conserving nature worldwide

Jointly organised by the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust and the RSPB, Birdfair encompasses the whole spectrum of the birdwatching industry whilst at the same time, supporting global bird conservation.

You’ll find everything at the fair, from scopes to sculptures, binoculars to bird food, eGuides to eco holidays – and of course, Rohan clothing!

You'll also get to experience a long list of events and lectures, hosted by Birdfair regulars. With 6 event locations, all running full programmes throughout the fair’s duration, there will be something for everyone to get excited about. There is even a whole area and programme of events being organised for younger wildlife enthusiasts called the ‘WildZone’.

We’ll be exhibiting at Birdfair once again, so come along and see us at Marquee 8, stands 13-16!

TICKETS

You can buy a weekend pass or opt for specific days, plus, there are options for camping! Discounted online ticket prices are available until 5pm 9 August 2019, after which gate prices will apply.

Proceeds from tickets, exhibitor feeds, sponsorship and events all contribute towards the 2019 project: Conserving Cambodia’s Big Five. Western Siem Pang, Cambodia, is home to five critically endangered species of bird – that’s a higher concentration than anywhere else in the world. This makes it a vital stronghold that must be preserved.

YOUR PHOTOS

Last year, we invited our fans and followers to share their best bird photography. Entries were judged by award-winning landscape, food and interior photographer Chris Orange and the winner selected was Mr Kevin Maxfield with his wonderful ‘Hovering Chaffinch’.

“This is a wonderful composition and the most accomplished photo in the competition.  The colours in the whole photograph are stunning and the wings of the Chaffinch are frozen in time with some beautiful motion blur. The photographer has shown real skill and understanding of photography. Top work!” - Chris Orange

These entries were highly commended by Chris Orange...

Avatar Shy Gannet. Beautiful composition of the Gannet. Love that the bird is looking directly into the camera.
Avatar Gannet Bempton Cliffs. This is a great action shot! It takes some skill to freeze this kind of moment when the bird is diving at high speeds.
Avatar Pretty in Pink. Beautiful composition - love this as the colours work perfectly together and the bird is positioned so well.
Avatar Arctic Terns fighting. Amazing action in the air! The photographer has shown some skill in capturing this moment when the birds are moving so quickly.
