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.

If you love wild animals, you are probably thrilled every time you spot some. They tend to be hard to spot in the city and highly populated areas, but even rural areas sometimes rarely see them during daylight. Night time is the best time to spot certain types of wildlife, particularly deer. Here are some tips for how to watch deer at night.
First find a spot that is known for deer to gather. This might be an apple orchard, a field of clover, or anywhere where deer might find food or go to drink water. You can find signs of deer by looking for tracks, droppings, and trails through the woods—look for places in the trees and bushes where leaves and have been pushed aside as a deer walked through.
You may want to carry a pair of binoculars. Binoculars will allow you to see deer closer than you would otherwise. Deer are extremely difficult to get close to as they can hear very well, and they have sharp vision. They also spook very easily.
Night vision binoculars or night vision goggles are also great for observing wildlife such as deer at night time. While pointing a flashlight or the headlights of your car at a deer might frighten it away before you can even really watch it, night vision equipment is designed to allow you to see at night without disturbing what you are watching.
Always be careful not to disturb animals or people when watching wildlife at night. Stay safe, and always obtain permission to be in a certain place at night.
Understanding the plethora of wildlife in our own back yards can be a little difficult, particularly when said beasties primarily show themselves at night. Our collection of night vision devices range from budget-price general observation (the Yukon Patrol 2×4 is lightweight, compact, durable, water resistant and great for both open field and long distance viewing) to professional night vision binoculars such as the Digital NV Ranger Pro 5×42 (boasting the likes of video output, bright exposure resistance, self contained and external power supply).
Here are a few furry neighbours to keep watch for on these long UK nights!
The badger is an incredibly shy animal, mostly living in family groups or packs. Although they’re less active in the colder months, by January/February many females are pregnant, making the daily forage for food more important than ever.
Poor foxes suffered a lot of bad press during 2010. Glimpsing a family of foxes is incredibly rewarding. If you have to time to hide out and with your night vision binoculars on the lookout for a female and some kits – it’s a must!
During colder months, the hungry barn owl will venture out for food during daylight hours. Although dusk and immediately after is generally the best time to spot them.
At least a quarter of the UK’s mammal population is made up of the eighteen species of bat that live and breed in the UK. Check out the Bat Conservation Trust to find local bat watching groups in your area.
Whether you are looking for binoculars for wildlife observation and terrestrial viewing situations or for more astronomical uses there are a variety of interesting and unique capabilities modern binoculars can now employ to make your hobbies more exciting and enjoyable. From night vision binoculars to laser guides, binoculars are more technological than ever. But this shouldn’t be something to put you off if you are accustomed to the more traditional varieties, nor a concern for your wallet. For such seemingly advanced technology this equipment has become much more affordable, as well as “user-friendly.” It also keeps in mind the need for easy maintenance and equipment that can take care of itself to some degree, employing methods such as waterproofing and fog proof optical systems to make your hobby more efficient as well as enjoyable.
Comfort is something to consider. Modern binoculars take into account that one piece of equipment isn’t the same for everyone. Thus, these products are often offered alongside useful tools such as full-length or half size tripods, carrying cases, straps or clamps, as well as attaching peripherals like adjustable eye pieces for the maximum in comfort during long periods of use.
And for those who don’t want to simply use their equipment for observation but, to some extent, as photography equipment as well, there is the popular option for imaging capabilities. These impressive kits allow you to share photos of the space objects you’ve seen with friends and families. There has never before been so much you could do with both terrestrial and astronomical binoculars.
Most of us like to escape the daily grind and head off on the occasional holiday. However, with money tight for many people at the moment, it can be easy to let the months slip by without arranging any trips.
While jetting off on an expensive foreign vacation may stretch your finances a little too much at present, why not explore the best the British Isles have to offer?
And getting a pair of binoculars may be the perfect excuse to pack your suitcase, get out the A to Z and set off in the car.
After all, what better way to get close to some of the most stunning attractions and the best nature has to offer than by engaging in this relaxing pursuit.
There are a whole range of binoculars to choose from, meaning you do not necessarily have to spend much to get started and you will be guaranteed to find something that suits your own particular requirements.
If you’re planning on doing a lot of roaming around while on your sightseeing holiday, a smaller, lightweight pair of binoculars could be ideal as these may get used more than larger ones that you could be tempted to leave in the car.
With so many animals and habitats to view, you’re sure to have an action-packed time and, when it comes to the end of your trip, you can rest safe in the knowledge that the next adventure is just round the corner.
After all, there will be plenty more of the UK to discover!
When it comes to selecting any piece of equipment, the final decision can be tricky. After all, no one wants to part with their hard-earned cash over an item that is in some way inappropriate.
So, when choosing binoculars, there are a number of things it is important to bear in mind. Firstly, what purpose will the device serve? Do you need it for backyard bird watching, woodland exploring, hunting or for a child to play with?
What you plump for in the end will very much depend on this. Another factor that will clearly play a part is the price and there is no point overstretching yourself financially. That said, going for the best you are able to afford could enhance your experience while using them.
Don’t panic if you do not have a clue when it comes to deciding which make and model is the best in your case as there is a wealth of information available on the web.
If you are seeking bird watching binoculars for use in your back garden, you may want to consider getting a pair with magnification of around eight.
You will also have to choose the size of your bird watching binoculars and you might want to go for a full-size set as they can provide better image quality than compact versions. And as you do not have to carry them around with you, the additional weight and unwieldiness should not be a problem.
Meanwhile in the case of hunting, you would need a pair of binoculars with other qualities. You may well not be able to carry large ones and waterproofing could be a value feature.
Whatever you’re after, by taking some time and seeking advice and information, you’re sure to be pleased with the results.
