Dark Flock is a collection of freaky feathered fiction by Canadian birder Matt Poll
AN alert against interfering with nature has been sounded by an American ornithologist. From installing nestboxes to introducing or re-introducing species, organisations and individuals often like to experiment in the belief that they are doing good. But Dorian Anderson warns: "Ecosystems do...
Anyone know about this scope / think this is a good deal? https://www.lcegroup.co.uk/Used/Opticron-IS-60-R-ED-+--18-54x-eyepiece-+-accessories-%7C-1017766_393077.html I am long standing but not expert bird watcher - mostly woodland and other closest range watching, so bins fine. But I am...

"I SOMETIMES wonder if Hudson was ever actually able to switch off from bird protection and relax . . ." So comments Conor Mark Jameson midway through in his illuminating study, Finding W.H. Hudson - The Writer Who Came to Britain to Save The Birds. The observation is understandable. Hudson...

I bought them a year ago for Hawkwatching. Lousy for Hawks, no field of view, and lack the punch of a zoom scope. Took them to the big lake, stuck them on a tripod and looked at the ducks. Pretty darn good! Took them out at night to look at stars. lots of shake, but that can be remedied. Price...
On the fence. Convince me of the 8x30 or 10x30 CL Companions. I can only find the 10X locally to look thru. 10X is fine, but will the 8X be noticeably better? These will also go on some long hikes, so looking at critters a half mile off is not uncommon. Thanks
