Many of us get so much pleasure from observing the wild birds, foxes, hedgehogs and other animals which wander into our gardens at different times of the year. It is enriching to be close to nature and encourage some sort of interaction so we can gain a semblance of trust with these creatures and encourage them to return again and again. After all, it is so much more convenient to pick up our binoculars and look at birds at the bottom of our own gardens than to have to trail through the woods in all conditions.
At Sherwoods, we have a full range of bird boxes and mammal shelter, camo hides and bat detectors which allow you to attract all types of fascinating creatures into your lives. So, get your bird watching binoculars at the ready as the right type of environment attracts all types of rare breeds of birds, hedgehogs, badgers, foxes and bats into your property.
We also have a beautiful range of s deco-birds and deco-animals; lovingly recreated models of the type of animals which are seen all over the European continent, complete with accompanying information brochures detailing their habits, environments and contribution to the biodiversity of the region.
Furthermore, we have fantastic bird boxes and feeders, as well as an amazing choice of compact weather stations which allow you to track and predict the weather and beat the Met Office at their own game! From bird watching binoculars to marine binoculars, bird boxes to bat sensors, Sherwoods are second to none.
Nature photographers, whether amateur or professional, are often frustrated when their equipment lets them down as they attempt to capture that killer shot. Night vision binoculars and bird watching binoculars allow us crystal clear live images of fantastic animals in their natural environment but some of us want a lasting record of these animals for posterity.
Many of us are privileged to live in areas where wildlife such as deer, foxes and badgers roam into our properties at night or in the early morning. Our glimpses of these animals are few and far between and we seldom have the appropriate equipment at the ready in order to capture these magical moments. However, at Sherwoods, we can help you build your own impressive photographic portfolio with perfect natural images for all to see. Our wireless remote control release devices are compatible with all major camera brands, and allow you to covertly place your camera in a prime position and then hide in order to monitor developments. When wildlife comes into the vicinity, simply click away and your camera will take as many pictures as necessary.
For those of us who want a more sophisticated method for obtaining our wildlife photographs, the innovative Bushnell trophy camera is ideal. This camera has one second trigger speed and a one year battery life, is tough and highly functional, with 32 night vision LEDs which enable you to capture after-dark images in perfect resolution. You can easily programme a trigger delay or up to three images per single trigger, and also shoot short movies in the appropriate mode.
So, why not add some high-tech camera kit to your night vision technology and binocular collection- you will be ready for any event.
The modern gun or bow hunter uses modern technology such as night vision as well as more traditional spotting methods such as using binoculars in order to track, target and eliminate his prey. Hunting has become more accurate and precise than ever before thanks to the introduction of laser range-finders. These amazing devices give pin-point accuracy on the distance of a target in an instant, thus allowing you to make split second decisions on the calibre of ammunition to use, which weapon is your best choice and levelling the playing field between you and your prey in terms of stealth.
Animals have a sixth sense because their instincts, vision and sense of smell are so superior to our own senses. They seem to know we are in the vicinity, no matter how experienced and skilled we are. However, laser-range finders provide us with the chance to endow ourselves with a sixth sense which has been previously impossible to develop.
At Sherwoods, we have Bushnell elite devices with an accurate range of between five and fifteen hundred yards, low light LED display for dawn and dusk conditions and superior resolution because of multi-coated optics. These range finders are fully water-proof, tough and durable, and suitable for the harshest hunting conditions.
We also have compact Bushnell legend 1200 devices and the Bushnell scout 1000 as well as a full range of Bushnell sport and trophy hunting aids. Therefore, combined with our binoculars and our range of night vision technology, you have no excuse for missing your target, day or night!
At Sherwoods, we are specialist suppliers of binoculars and telescopes, and lot, lot more. For example, our range of microscopes is enduringly popular with customers.
We have microscopes which are perfect for scrutinising stamps and coins in order to verify if your latest investment is a rare example of its type and perhaps worth a small fortune. Stamp collecting, or philately, is still very popular in the UK, and it is impossible to get a more precise picture of each of your stamps than through one of our premium microscopes. Coins are more tactile than stamps and many coin collectors enjoy immersing themselves in the history of the contemporary period of their coinage. It is fascinating to imagine the type of people who held an ancient coin in their hands- perhaps a Roman soldier purchasing a loaf of bread, or a Victorian explorer buying a newspaper with the latest news from the Zulu wars emblazoned across it.
We also have biological microscopes, which are suitable for professional scientists and students alike, and allow them to look at the fascinating structures of leafs, insects and fungi. These microscopes can be an invaluable tool for children taking Biology or Geology at school, as they enable them to bring the pictures in textbooks to life by using real samples. A microscope is the perfect present for the diligent young scientist, and can help them develop into the next David Attenborough or Michaela Strachan.
So, Sherwoods are your first stop for telescopes and binoculars, but our product range is amazingly diverse, so please browse our website today.
