Thousands of people have been attending Birdfair 2016 in Egleton, Rutland, this weekend.

The event, which began on Friday and finishes today, is affectionately known as ‘the Glastonbury for birdwatchers’.

Wildlife experts including Chris Packham and Simon King are among the famous faces at the event, which has six marquees running packed programmes of events.

There are also hundreds of stands selling the latest products for wildlife enthusiasts – everything, from scopes to sculptures, binoculars to bird food, e-Guides to eco holidays. On the gate tickets are £15 for a single day. Entry is free entry for children under 16 - with a full paying adult.

See next week’s paper for more photos and a full report.
