ŁThey occur in the central highlands and the south, but I don't think they are likely. I saw a single bird in Ta Nung valley in several years living in Dalat. I think Parrotfinches are nomadic and...

I think you have chances for the Accentor at Rochers de Naye.

For Wallcreeper better go a little higher up. Tour d'Ai/Leysin is not far and should be a good spot. Alpine Accenter should...

Swarovski has two zoom eypieces, the 20-60x and the 25-50x Wide. The 25-50 has as much field of view on the lower end as the 30x w. So if you have the 25-50x, no point getting the 30x w. If you have...
