    best wellies for birding?

    Might seem an odd question, But I've never owned wellies 'since I grew up', and I'm heading to Papua new Guinea and believe they are essential. Are there such things as 'decent' wellies, and if so has anyone any recommendations? Ideally I don't want to have to wear thick wellie socks in that...
