If wildlife’s your thing, then we’ve got an event for you that’s not to be missed! Join Olympus for the World’s largest international birdwatching event; Birdfair 2018.

Described as the birdwatcher’s Glastonbury and now in it’s 29th year, Birdfair is the beacon for conservation and ecology projects around the globe. Join us there and you’ll have the chance to capture a range of magnificent birds, with the beautiful Rutland Water Nature Reserve as your backdrop.

And as if that wasn’t enough, top wildlife photographer and Olympus Ambassador Tesni Ward will be in attendance presenting her ‘Working with Wildlife‘ lecture (repeated throughout the event – 11:00-11:20 and 14:00-14:20 Fri 17th, Sat 18th, & Sun 19th Aug) in the Hobby Lecture Theatre. In between talks Tesni will be at the Olympus stand to provide any help you need with photographing the birds on show – plus don’t miss our exclusive Olympus hide! Olympus Nordic Ambassador Jari Peltomäki will also be doing a talk on the ‘Wildlife of Finland‘ in the Osprey Lecture Theatre (Fri 17th Aug from 13:20-13:50).

Joining Tesni will be the usual team of Olympus Experts, offering support and advice and answering any questions you may have about how to get the best out of your Olympus camera. You can also take this opportunity to get hands on with the latest award-winning range of Olympus cameras and lenses – including the OM-D E-M1 Mark II.
