Comments from 2015
Our Thanks for the lovely comments, some are below:
Sharon Arnold: Had a great time at the Bird Fair yesterday.looking forward to next year.
Steve: Next year I am going to bring more friends along. Some were away for the weekend this year. It was great to see a lot of birds on view, at various event stalls. Bill Oddie drew a big crowd too.
Steven Pointer: many thanks for putting on the Norfolk Bird and Wildlife Fair. Once again it was very enjoyable day out in very natural surroundings, along with setting of Mannington Hall. It was great to see and hear Bill Oddie, the talk about the cuckoos beforehand was also good. There were some new stalls this year too. Many thanks for your hard work organising this event again. Looking forward to next year.
Mary Anne Jacklin: Really enjoyed the bird fair. Such a beautiful place!
