Last weekend I was at the Birdfair at Rutland Water, an annual event labelled ‘the birdwatchers Glastonbury’. I went to this event for one day last year and decided that I would make the most of it and go for all three days this year, camping on a nearby camp site. I was kindly invited to co-lead two invertebrate walks for the Wildlife Trusts, along with Dr Brian Eversham (@BrianE_Cambs). Aside for being CEO of the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire Wildlife Trust, Brian is a great friend and an amazing naturalist. I have never co-led a walk before and was honoured to be given the chance to do so. It has been one of my aims for a while now but I have never felt knowledgeable or confident enough to do so.
