Birdfair 2012 was another fair to remember for the NHBS team
We’d like to thank all of you who came to see us at the Birdfair, and helped make it such a success. And thanks to all those who participated in the NHBS Wildlife Workshops, and to Nick Baker for sharing his infectious enthusiasm for the world of mini-beasts – it was great fun to be able to demonstrate some of our products in action and to see so many young wildlife buffs catching the bug! (see pics below)
Congratulations to our Birdfair £50 NHBS Voucher prize winner – Jane Nicholls of Oakham, Rutland
“My whole garden is planned with wildlife in mind so I am genuinely delighted to have won this NHBS voucher. I think connection with nature is so important and I loved the live sessions in the Events Marquee at Birdfair this year: “Pond Dipping” with Nick Baker and “Moth Trapping” with Phil Sterling and Richard Lewington. I do hope that they will be repeated? Due to the presenters’ enthusiasm I have already purchased a pond dipping kit and butterfly net and would now be interested in buying the Trekker Field Microscope which would help with all aspects of identification and I know I would get a lot of pleasure using it. Birdfair is a really enjoyable and friendly event, has something of interest for everyone and raises money for bird conservation at the same time. Brilliant!”
This year we are gearing up for our biggest Birdfair yet!
NHBS has a bigger and better stand this year featuring a new workshop area with a full schedule of events all weekend. Come along to find out more about ultrasound bat detecting, pond-dipping, wildlife photography and more. And join us in the main Birdfair Event Marquee daily for a big screen live moth-trapping event with Phil Sterling and Richard Lewington on Friday, and a ‘Virtual Pond Dip’ with Nick Baker on Saturday and Sunday. As always we look forward to meeting you there, out of the office and in person!

NHBS are off to Rutland Water again this month for Birdfair 2011.
We look forward to seeing you all there again – as usual you will encounter a great range of books covering ornithology from all angles: field guides, monographs, avian science, photography; plus a wide selection of books concerning British and World wildlife: entomology, wildlife travel, natural history writing and much more.
NHBS would like to thank all our customers at Birdfair 2010 who helped make it a great escape from the office and a lot of fun!
And we would like to thank the organisers for giving us 1st Place in the Best Stand Awards – commercial (see picture below).
We enjoyed meeting you and we hope you enjoyed browsing our books and wildlife equipment – it was a busy and interesting weekend – made all the more interesting by some classic British weather! – and we hope most of you found what you were looking for. Remember to get in touch if there’s anything you wanted that we were unable to bring with us…

We’ll be out and about next weekend selling books and wildlife equipment in the heart of rural England at the British Birdfair at Rutland Water. If you’re going we look forward to seeing you on the NHBS stand in Marquee 2.
As usual we will be hosting some authors at the NHBS stand – here’s a list of who will be signing copies of their books with us this year:
The NHBS stand was very busy at the Birdfair this year – it was great to meet so many new and returning customers. Here’s Sir David Attenborough getting his copy of Albatross: Their World, their Ways signed by the author, Julian Fitter.
Several authors signed copies of their books on our stand:
