Is Cannop ponds a large area? Is the Shrike site fairly straightforward...
Just wondering if anyone has been to the Serin site at Mudbank Lane on Warren View playing fields.
Any advice on parking and directions would be appreciated. Does it show fairly frequently or is it a waiting game?
I have a few hours spare tomorrow so a great bird to catch up with hopefully...
In Gloucester tomorrow so am thinking of going to Highnam Woods or an other good site nearby.

Having recently purchased an IS60, I am looking to get another eyepiece for this.
The scope came with an 18-54x standard zoom eyepiece which is OK but was wondering if the HDF zoom eyepiece which Opticron do would give much better views or would a fixed eyepiece of say 25x or 30x be better??
