Simon King to speak at Birdfair 2017

This August, wildlife expert Simon King OBE will be speaking at Birdfair, an annual event for birdwatchers, held every year at Rutland Water in England.

Known as the ‘Glastonbury of birdwatching’, Birdfair runs from August 18 to 20. The annual three-day nature event features talks and hundreds of stalls and brings together nature lovers from 83 countries. So far, Birdfair has raised more than £4 million for vital conservation work around the world.

Simon King and Wildlife World, designers and manufacturers of wildlife products and habitats, will be attending the event and Simon will be discussing the wildlife he captures through his lens.

Simon King has been filming and photographing wildlife for more than 40 years. In his Wild Light presentation, he will be reflecting on some of the amazing events he has witnessed and gone on to share with the world. This includes some clips that didn’t make it to film or digital chips. Simon will discuss the effect that seeing these films and photos can have on our sense of care and affinity for the natural world.

Wild Light – the natural world seen through the lens of Simon King will take place at Birdfair in the Events Marquee across all three days from 2pm-2.45pm.
