Falsterbo Bird Show

Falsterbo Bird Show is an annual nature and environmental fair focusing on birds. The aim is to increase public interest in nature in general and birds in particular and generate funding for bird protection and conservation. In this year’s edition of the fair children and family activities will have a prominent place along with a variety of outdoor experiences for everyone. Falsterbo Bird Show takes place every year in late August early September at the riding facility Falsterbo Horse Show arena in Falsterbo, southern Sweden.

Vellinge kommunSveriges Ornitologiska Förening (SOF) and Skånes Ornitologiska Förening (SkOF) are organizing Falsterbo Bird Show.
Programme 2013

This year’s programme was even more comprehensive than previous years. The number of exhibitors has increased constantly and several new activities were scheduled. Thursday’s programme was aimed at children and their teachers at kindergartens and schools. The gates to the event opened to the general public at noon on the Friday. A weekend programme packed with exhibitions, excursions, lectures, entertainment, competitions, culinary highs and friendly company culminated with the Honey Buzzard Day which took place in the arena area throughout the Sunday.
Falsterbo Bird Show 2013 offered a full and varied programme for every taste. The riding facility (Falsterbo Horse Show arena) was the hub of the activities taking place.

Bird Protection
Migrating birds are international travelers, passing national boundaries unhindered during their migration. This means that the birds that for a few short summer months are at our latitude to reproduce during the year are otherwise on the move or at their winter quarters. All the birds that occur naturally in Sweden are protected according to the EU Birds Directive. This is also the case in the other Member States of the EU.
Activities for Children
This year we once again made a special commitment to children and their teachers concentrating on pre-school and junior and secondary schools. After the overwhelming response these activities received last year, this year’s version of the Falsterbo Bird Show was extended for a further day. Thursday 29th of August was completely given over to children’s activities and learning with a special programme designed for the 800 children who were lucky enough to participate this year. The number of children who applied was much bigger and next year there will be even further days added to the Falsterbo Bird Show so that all the children who wish to will have the chance to participate in the activities. These activities continued on the Friday. On the Friday, as well as the Saturday and Sunday, there were continuous activities for children on the programme.
