 A male kestrel hunting outside our Travelodge hotel.
 Meeting up with Jonathan Scott of The Big Cat Diary.Brilliant guy.

 Photo shoot after chatting with Simon King in his marquee.
 Laughs a minute with Johnny Kingdom.
 A quick photo with David Lindo The Urban Birder after his talk about his US trip.
We had a fantastic 3 days meeting up with known wildlife celebritries and some of my friends from the internet such as Tristan Reid(The Inked Naturalist), Terry Everitt,wood carver... and Friends Of Nature supporters.

I will definately be back again next year and hope to see some new friends there too.:)
