    High End Zoom Bins

    Clearly I’m going to be hung from the nearest rowan tree for daring to mention the Z word on BF but I do wonder why none of the top three brands offer a low to middle power zoom set of bins. I’m discounting the Leica Duvid, albeit having owned a pair they could be set at any guessed...

    My favourite birds are: 1. Yaffle 2. Blackcap 3. Siskin I'm here to learn as distinct from subjecting you to my questionable wisdom. My weaknesses are an Autumn wood, the spoken word, and music of all types including jazz. The latter something I won't be apologising for however...
