We had beautiful weather for the 2014 fair, fantastic stewards, terrific stallholders and a delightful venue. It was a brilliant two days. Pictures to follow
Below are some of the lovely comments we have had:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a wonderful show and hope that it becomes an annual event.again, thank you, regards, Mike Wildman.
Well Done and Congratulations - having visited the Fair today we both enjoyed it very much having visited the exhibitors marquee and attended a number of the short lectures. It was obvious that a
lot of work had gone into organising the event. Steve Collins
Fantastic weekend @norfolkbirdfair So
many inspiring people! Hope it runs again next year! Teena Vallerine via Twitter
I hope that this is the place to say what a wonderful time we had at the Bird fair today ( Sunday). Everyone from the lads in the car park to the stewards to the exhibitors was so friendly. It
was a superb setting and of course the weather was fantastic. it was a lovely atmosphere - we bought some great things and had a thoroughly marvellous time. We will be back next year. Chris and Judi
Just to say what a good day we had at the birdfair on Saturday. Took the chance to go to a couple of talks, great. Thank you very much for your hard work. Hope you can work your magic
in 2015. Geoff and Ann Jones
May I add my voice to the no doubt thousands who have written in appreciation not only
of your efforts in organising this wonderful event, but also of the result - we really need an
adjective stronger than superb (maybe superberest !).Wonderful location, knowledgeable and enthusiastic exhibitors, plenty of food at acceptable prices (bearing in mind they had a 'captive
audience' !) - what more could one ask ! Tony Parsons.
I have to write and let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed the Norfolk Bird Fair! We could not fault it , nor would want to. We enjoyed speaking to welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable
stallholders and the stewards were brilliant. A HUGE WELL DONE TO YOU ALL! Lin Pateman.
Think you did a great job Jill, we really enjoyed our visit & look forward to next year.
Great choice of venue. Roy Scrivener
Thouroughly enjoyed the whole weekend. Thanks so much for organising it! (the weather probably helped) Mick Hill
We had a great weekend. Superb venue, excellent organisation, superb variety of informative, creative and practical stands. All topped off with glorious weather. In my opinion 100% better than
Rutland. Congrats to all involved . Mandy Nicholls
I would also like to say that the venue was amazing and the hospitality of all the venders we encountered was excellent. Meeting the Lord and Lady was highlight. Gavin and Mac
It was a great day yesterday. We loved watching the BTO ring long tailed tit babies, a wren, a great tit and a blue tit! Were lucky to see a pair of spotted
fly catchers going in and out of their nest in a tree near the Suffolk wildlife trust tent. See you next year! Sarah Evans
Well done guys. Hope to be back again next year. Spitfire Hogroasts
What a hoot the Bird Fair was! It was great to be a part of all the action. Well done guys. Sophie Grimwood

Two glorious days at Norfolk Bird Fair! well done for this debut event! what an

We had a great time at the Norfolk Bird Fair this weekend a great variety of wildlife visited our stall including a stunning angle shades moth. WWT
Enjoyed a fabulous morning. Thank you for organising the Fair. Very much hope you will be back again next year. Jan Dawson
Wanted to email you both and pass on our thanks and congratulations for what we felt, was a successful Norfolk Bird Fair! The event
setting was beautiful; watching people eating their lunch and lazing in the sun around the moat, must have left visitors in a good vibe. Damien from WEX
We had lots of fun @norfolkbirdfair last
weekend! Here we are Saturday morning, before two days of chatting :) Norfolk Trails
Anyone who decided not to come at the last minute, or even earlier missed out on a great weekend.
Regional Bird Fairs have their place and complement the British Bird Fair on a local scale. Rik
Hi Jill, my friends and I enjoyed the Bird Fair, there was a lot to see surrounded by the settings of Mannington Hall. The weather was perfect for the weekend, we hope that the event has been a
great success. Steve
The aim of the bird fair is to raise money for local conservation projects as well as to get like minded people together to talk and have a good time. There will also be plenty of
opportunity to buy new equipment and research the next holiday. Our Aim.
If you are interested in helping out over the two days, we are looking for volunteers to help with ushering for lectures, car parking, information services, setting up etc so please
contact either Jill or Rob to put your name down. More information here
