You sure can collect a vast amount of 'stuff' at these fairs but there are a few gems as well. I’m well made up with the double (two stuck together) mousemat(s) I secured from the Butterfly Conservation chaps and this means I can donate one to myself when I’m in the Bittern Information Centre. Win win as they say. Got a million brochures from bird trip companies that think I’m a millionaire. You should see the cost of some, no, all of them. Certain people managed to find free alcohol too but I restrained myself as I wanted to remain the consummate professional that everyone knows me for.

|There’s most of the British Bird Fair in Brenda’s bag you know..|
We didn’t find Ospreys. We did pick up Little Gull, Green Sandpiper and Common Sandpiper but Brenda couldn’t fit them in her bag so we had to leave them there. So an excellent adventure and a great reward for volunteering for something I love anyway. Another win, win.
