Hi Chris,

We did see the Golden Eagles a few times after this incident but not perched, and not so close. The area had Brown Hares, two of which visited us most evenings (see pic), and we found two...

Based on the Kowa BD II 6.5x32 XD I am reviewing right now, I agree with you Andy. I like Terras but the Kowa is a step up in all respects.

Having given fashion advice about a member's wife on a binoculars forum, surely commenting on scurrilous rumours about a colour cast in Zeiss binos is well within your remit!
