If you are a beginning bird watcher, you probably aren’t ready to invest a whole lot of money in your equipment yet. So, if you’re just starting out and you want a pair of binoculars, here are some fairly inexpensive models that are still high quality bird watching binoculars.
The Acuter RP Binoculars is an ideal starter pair, offered at only £20.00. These binoculars offer very good optical performance for the price. They are stylish and compact, and feature black rubber covering and a chrome bridge. They also come with a neck cord and a binoculars case.
If you can afford to spend a little bit more and you want a slightly nicer model, you might prefer the Konica Minolta Classic II Porro-Prism Binoculars, offered at only £70.00. These offer many high performance features of higher end binoculars but come at a much lower price.
These feature large exit pupil diameter, high image brightness, and a multi layer optical coating. A really good quality pair of binoculars for a fraction of the cost.
Another good choice in a less expensive pair of bird watching binoculars are the Optical Hardware HG Series, Elinor binoculars. With fully multicoated lenses, waterproof body, and high resolution these binoculars are ideal for bird watchers who go out in all kinds of weather. They are offered at only £95.00.

Choosing a pair of binoculars will depend a lot on what you want them for. Many people want them for observing nature, such as bird watching. Others may want them for hiking or camping, just to have a way of seeing anything interesting they find up close. Still others may want them for boating.
Here are some tips for choosing amongst our binoculars to make sure you get the right pair for your needs.

Are you looking for some fun Christmas gifts? Perhaps you want something a little more unusual? Why not give someone on your list a telescope, a pair of binoculars, or a camera?
The great thing about giving practical yet fun gifts like these is that you not only give someone an unusual and exciting gift, but it’s something that they can enjoy all year round. It also encourages people to get outside and enjoy nature. This is ideal for children who spend too much time indoors, or elderly people who want to get more exercise.
For binoculars, we have a great selection of bird watching ones, and marine ones. Buying someone a pair of binoculars is a great way to encourage a new hobby. You could also include some bird guides or other nature books, or a nature calendar in your gift.
A telescope makes a great gift for anyone who loves nature, or even for a student who is studying science. Check out our Telescopes Basics guide to choose the right scope for the person on your gift list.
Night vision optics are another great gift for nature lovers. A lot of wildlife is only active at night time, so giving hikers and nature enthusiasts a pair of night vision optics is an ideal way to encourage them in their interests, and to give them a gift they will truly enjoy.
We also carry a range of cameras, gifts and gadgets, board games, portable radios, and many other items that would make great Christmas gifts.
Are you enamoured by the night sky? If you’re spending a lot of time star gazing lately, you may want to invest in a good telescope. It can make viewing stars and planets so much more exciting. It’s also a great way to spend a date with someone else who loves nature, or enjoy family time with the kids.
