    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    Yesterday i took my new Habicht 7x42 on a walk along the beach and dunes for testing and i saw a lot of birds, the Eurasian spoonbill was the most special i guess. Beautifull bird. Also a lot of kite surfers as there was strong wind.

    This big proud soon to be mother of four let me watch her from close distance through my Nikon 6x15 for a minute and then i felt like an intruder so I let her be. First i became very angry about the plastic around her but then…shame on me…i start thinking about how big of a omelette you could...

    Im sorry it’s not a good foto but this morning i spotted a common kingfisher in the forest, had my Leitz Trinovid 7x35B with me and made use of the 150 m FOV to see this remarkable bird in flight. Nice colors.

    Observed a great crested grebe from close distance for a half hour or so with my Leica UVHD 7x42. The sun was shining, some money in my pocket, no serious health issues, it was a great day! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_crested_grebe

    Early this morning i watched flocks of common starlings from my house using my Leitz Trinovid 7x35B. It’s a wonderful little binocular and it did the job very well with it’s 150 m FOV.

    No offense at all GrandpaTom. Especially for you my observation today through my recently acquired Leica 12x50: for 30 minutes i observed a group of 30 or 40 crows flying around in the strong wind.

    IMO the Swift 8.5x44 and 10x50 are really true gems and indeed as you said for the price you can get a good specimen worth looking for. I have a pair of MC 8.5x44 in Crete and my friends use it everyday with great pleasure.

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    The last few nights i’m looking at the (full) moon a lot. It’s big fun and I can’t stop, really fascinating. The “winner” last night for hand holding moon 🌝 observation was clearly my Habicht 10x40. It was almost too bright, but the high transmission was clearly noticeable in comparison with...

    A big black crow landed on my balcony and organized his feathers for 15 minutes. I observed him with Habicht 10x 40 and Leica Trinovid 7x42 BN from about 3 meters. At this short distance I slightly preferred the Leica today, it gave me a bit less detail but the contrast was better. Both bins...

    Today i watched snowflakes from my apartment through a Zeiss FL 7x42, Habicht 8x30 and Leica UVHD 7x42. They -the bino’s‘ - performed extraordinary but with a small margin: extra special view through the little Habicht.
