Lee Vally Birdwatching and Wildlife Fair 17-18th Feb 9.30am-4.30pm

In light of the recent discovery of bird flu in domestic turkeys in Suffolk, we wish to confirm that the Lee Valley Birdwatching and Wildlife Fair will continue as planned. This event does not involve the movement or collection of caged or domestic birds.
On advice from the British Trust for Ornithology, we will also continue with the planned bird ringing activity. All ringers ensure that the hygiene rules of the Ringing Scheme are adhered to by everyone visiting the area
We look forward to welcoming you to the event and hope that you enjoy observing the many birds and other wildlife in their natural habitat within our Country Park.

Things to look forward to!
Now in its 6th successful year, and one of the largest events of its type in the country, the event boasts over 50 exhibitors catering for all your birdwatching and wildlife needs. If that wasn't enough there is also a full programme of guided walks taking you into the River Lee Country Park, not to mention a packed lecture programme with talks from experts on a wide range of subjects and even some special celebrity guests.
Taking place at the Lee Valley Park Farms, near Waltham Abbey, in partnership with the East London Birders Forum, the fair is a fantastic opportunity to see many rare wintering birds, including Bittern.
