    Nest Dismantling

    The link below is to my Picasa web album showing the progress of a Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike nest. The nest was about 15 metres from my dining room window ands I had a spotting scope permanently set up on the dining table. The photos were taken from a point about 10 metres from the nest. The...

    Zen-Ray ED Spotting Scope

    Now that I have my Zen-Ray 8x43ED binoculars, next on my wish list is a similar quality and well priced spotting scope! Hopefully we might see one on offer in the near future.

    Canon Powershot SX10 IS or Sony DSLR A200

    Last year I lost my Canon Powershot S3IS (in a taxi in Hong Kong) and bought a Sony A200 twin lense kit. I love the camera but the lenses are very ordinary. The 75-300 doesn't get as photos as sharp as the Canon used too. And despite being a huge lense, is only effectively as 7 times zoom...
