UK Birdfair, Oakham, accomodation
Jul 28, 2012

Hi folks,

Il be traveling to the UK birdfair at Rutland Water Nature Reserve, 16th - 19th August. I am currently looking for accommodation in the area but finding it very difficult as everything is taken.

If any of you birdwatchers / nature photographers are traveling to the event and have accommodation available, know of any availability or willing to share, preferably in Oakham or very near by, id be most grateful.

Please send me an email or a reply and il get back to u soonest.

If you are renting a car then look for anything north or south along the A1 - it's a major road and easy to navigate. Driving from where I live in North London is not a huge burden, the couple of times I have been up that way. You should find plenty of places around/between Huntingdon & Grantham.

I've just found several places vacant - without really trying. Why not hire a car and travel in from a little further afield?

Is there anything special on this year? Nikon's 800mm?

Good luck.
