    request advice on Nikon Fieldscope eyepiece

    Thank you so much. I had already (recently) purchased a Nikon Fieldscope II 60mm (not ED) with a 20x-45x zoom eyepiece. It has narrow field of view and hurts the eyes a bit when used for a long time. I read on this forum the wider angle is good and that fixed EP are wider field of view. Thus ...

    Request which redshank id - Leighton Moss, UK, October 22nd 2021

    Sorry for the awful quality of cropped photo of this distant bird. Please may I request advice as to whether or not it could be a Spotted Redshank. I understand there were a small number of spotted redshank around amongst the large number of common redshands.

    Can someone tell me what type of Heron this is?

    Question re. Little Stint

    Please may I enquire about the photo attached of a Little Stint. The photo was taken in Bulgaria in 2019 (Mid September) Would it be possible to comment on whether it is a juvenile or adult bird. I am confused by pictures of the species in field guides etc and cannot come to a conclusion.

    Request advice on Nikon Fieldscope

    Thank you again. I would be paying more for the eyepiece than I paid for the scope LOL. Still I imagine such an EP would have resaleable value were I ever to no longer need it. Mind you, I don't think I will go for the Japan option to be honest. I think I will first of all try out the new scope...

    request advice re: warbler sp , Durankulak, Bulgaria Sept 2019

    Thank you so much Alexander. Although not overly knowledgeable about these things, I did consider the possibility of Bonelli's given the greenish primaries and the somewhat "stocky" appearance (the latter seems to fit more Bonelli's then Willow Warbler which, one reads, is of longer body) . I...

    request advice re: warbler sp , Durankulak, Bulgaria Sept 2019

    I have posted this bird once before but I would like to enquire again if possible please: I apologize for the poor quality photos. I see that it is a phylloscopus (I think) but cannot work out which are the possible candidates. Perhaps by process of elimination it can be identified. I see the...
