The weather was kind for the Norfolk Bird Fair, but there was a low turn out from the public. Not sure why as the venue was superb and there was much on offer. The atmosphere in the marquee was very friendly and everyone had a good time, from our point of view it all went very well.
The Wader Quest talk in the morning was well attended with many people kindly visiting the stand afterwards to talk more about what we are doing. Many of these people then went on to sign up as sponsors, for which we are very grateful. Talking of sponsors, our good friends from Wildsounds have agreed to be Founder Corporate Sponsors which is great news for us. Our stand was next to theirs and Duncan, Pieter, Rik and Hilary kept us amused for much of the time.
Next year we hope it'll be better attended by the public; if you stayed away because you weren't sure if it would be up to standard, you missed a good day out. This regional event complements very well the annual British Bird Fair event and, for people like us who need as much exposure as possible, a veritable boon to our year.
Our thanks go to Rob and Jill Wilson for having the courage to throw themselves in at the deep end to provide us with an enjoyable and productive weekend.
