Anyone have experience of using this bin? I'd be interested in how close their performance is to alpha models and how eye-friendly they are. Most reviews I've seen cover the 8x32s (I'm not interested in this format, have a couple already)
Thanks in advance
Has anyone bought or had a leaf through this title? I own lots of wader books so to interest me it would need to be very detailed on sub-specific ID etc.
Researching my first visit to this attractive and mostly unspoilt Balearic island was a challenge; not many birders choose Menorca over the more species-rich Mallorca, even in spring, and detailed information for autumn was scarce. This meant some of the birds I found came as a pleasant...
This was seen by a non-birder said to know the local, common birds. On the grass outside Sainsbury's on two occasions last month, apparently.

I'm off to Menorca for two weeks next week and wondered which shearwaters I'm likely to see. Cory's? Scopoli's? Yelkouan? Balearic?
Any advice on good seawatching spots (or any other hot tips on Menorca birding) welcomed
I'm getting one of these for Christmas (not primarily for birding, of course). But I wondered had anyone used the (free) 3G connection on this device to read birding websites, eg RBA, Birdguides.
As I understand it the browser is rather basic but capable of handling websites that are mostly...
I know it's unfashionable to say so but I thought Leica did rather well when I sent my 8x42BRs back to have the focus smoothened. Picked up from my house by UPS on Aug 30th, back from Germany on Sept 10th. The estimate had been six weeks.
They also replaced the body armour and gave them a...
Could anyone recommend a current model for videoscoping/normal use, fairly small and compact, maybe up to £500? I've looked through various threads here but as ever with photographic equipment, recommended models are soon replaced by newer versions that may not be so good.
I'm after a small to medium-sized shoulder bag for birding, fairly slim, enough space for smallish flask/water bottle, food and other bits and pieces. One or two small zipped compartments would be good.
Anyone got a good one? Any of the Crumpler series suitable?
Thanks in advance,
