If you’re a wildlife or bird watching fanatic, one of your most prized possessions will be your binoculars. They can open up the world in ways you never thought possible, helping you see things you’d otherwise have no way of noticing, and if you choose your pair wisely you can look forward to years of enjoyment. But just how can you get the most from them?
Well, the first thing you need to do is decide upon the necessary specification. This could depend on a number of factors but your budget and level of dedication to the area will generally be the most pressing—if you’re new to the field then you might be happy with a more basic pair whereas if you’re starting to take it more seriously you’ll want something with a higher spec, so it’s often a very personal decision. But, whatever your level of experience you’ll still need to make sure you’re getting products with good magnification, light transmission and field of vision, and it all comes down to getting the most for your money.
It’s important to consider the size as well, with smaller, compact versions being ideal if you want to keep a pair in your pocket for those unexpected bird watching moments. Of course, you always need to make sure you’re setting the binoculars right for your eyes and if you wear glasses you’ll have to be more selective in your decision, but if you really want to get the most from your bird watching binoculars you’ll need expert advice to help you choose. That’s where we come in. With years of experience we’re perfectly placed to help, so get in touch today and you’ll be able to make the most of your bird watching binoculars before you know it.
There’s more to night vision than meets the eye. It offers far more usable benefits that you might think with it being much more than a way to hunt, spy or survey, because if you’re interested in wildlife observation it can bring the twilight hours to life in a way you never thought possible.
There’s nothing better than being able to observe the great outdoors, and your garden could easily be a hub of wildlife activity. If that’s the case then chances are it’ll be just as active at night, if not more so—it’s in the hours of darkness that the truly interesting animals come out to play, and you could well find that your garden is home to far more than a few birds and a frog or two. Basic binoculars will hold you back from all that and if you keep any lights on you’ll frighten any visitors away, so the only thing to do is invest in night vision.
But, don’t think you’ll have to invest in outrageously expensive or overly large pieces of equipment, because thanks to rapid technological advancements in the area you might be surprised at the options open to you. Monoculars, goggles, scopes and even binoculars are all available with this specialist feature, and you won’t have to spend a fortune to get products of the necessary quality. You could easily be missing out on a wealth of wildlife observation opportunities by not having this piece of technology in your life, and if you want to see the types of products on offer just get in touch and we’ll gladly fill you in.
The days are getting longer, the nights are shorter and the sunshine keeps us company for much longer than we’ve become accustomed to. Spring is most definitely in the air, and that can only mean one thing—it’s time to start preparing for a brand new season of bird watching.
It’s the time of year when nature starts to wake up, filling the air with birdsong and the scent of flowers in bloom, and if you want to make sure you don’t miss a second of all that frivolity it’s essential you’ve got your trusty bird watching binoculars ready and waiting. You never know when you might need them—a simple stroll through the countryside could present you with a wealth of bird watching opportunities, and even driving past a hedgerow could bring something new into focus. You never know what you might find at this time of year and that’s half the fun of it, so having a pair of binoculars or two dotted around the place is essential.
You might want to keep a basic pair in your car for those spontaneous bird watching opportunities, but for true aficionados nothing can beat a pair of top-quality bird watching binoculars. If you’re heading off on a bird watching expedition then you’ll need something a cut above the norm, and instead of simple binoculars you might want a bird watching scope—the choice is yours and comes down to a combination of preference and your level of bird watching dedication, but no matter what you need make sure to take a look around and you’ll find just what you’re after to ensure you’re totally prepared for the season ahead.
Are you a nature lover who would love to spot some endangered species? Perhaps you dream of seeing a Great Bittern in flight, or maybe you want to spot a Harbour Porpoise while visiting the ocean?
If you want to spot endangered animals and enjoy seeing them in nature, you will need to learn as much about them as you can. Where do they live and what do they eat? Do they come out during the day, or are they only nocturnal?
Once you know enough about the species that you want to see, you can then begin to plan an excursion. You will need to think about acquiring the appropriate gear, such as hiking boots or waterproofs. And if you will be in the mountains, you may need thermals, and if you will be on the water you may need lifejackets.
You will also want certain equipment such as binoculars. These are vital in your search for endangered species as you may never come close enough to one of these animals to actually enjoy it if you don’t use binoculars.
Depending on when the animal you want to see comes out, you may also need night vision binoculars. These are great for watching animals that come out at dawn or twilight as you may need to be in place while it is still dark.
