    Field Review of my (four) binoculars and my gear setup

    I was on a lake near Bucharest. The lake is beautiful in the middle of the forest, like in a fairy tale. It is full of cut tree stumps that the birds use as a post.

    Beyond Barry Hill

    Barry hill sits almost in front of our house. We are situated on farmland and the wildlife around blows my mind on a daily basis, may I never grow bored of it. I'd like to share what I see every day, whether at home or on our wanderings around the area. I'm a walker, who owns a couple of...

What do you think? What is it? After some research, I was thinking a...
