Something from our Resources section: Binoculars and Spotting Scopes

Binoculars and spotting scopes come in a huge range from a large number of manufacturers. You can choose from top brands that make optically brilliant products but come at a truly stupendous price or you can choose something a little less expensive but still have brilliant optics that are pretty close to the very expensive items.

Selecting the right product for you is all down to usage and preference. Forest birding might only need a magnification of 7 or 8 but will need a wide aperture to let in more light so a 7X50 pair of binoculars would suite, however go out to a wetland with large distances and you might want to get a spotting scope with an eye piece that will give you a magnification of 90X!

Size and weight can also be a factor as can the eyepieces on both scopes and binoculars. We have selected a range below, all available at B&H Photo Video in the US.

To view the rest of the Resources, click here.

You will find three main sections to this web site. Each of these is made up of subsections.

The first is the Home section, this contains links to information and services that we hope you will find useful, from competitions to a Google Maps with Streetview.

Next is our traditional Forum or Bulletin Board. There are many sub forums contained in this section, designed to help birders with various subjects, from help with difficult to identify birds through to a forum specifically for those wanting to show off their latest and greatest photographs! We have also included a dedicated section for those wanting to contribute data to the Wikipedia. You will notice that the menu on the right contains links to the latest ten posts.

Last but not least is the Our Products section, which contains information on all the products that we have either created ourselves or have contributed to in some way.

If you should have any queries on how to use this site, or have a question on a resource that you have seen, you are more than welcome to contact us.

Any suggestions you may have on how we can improve the site will also be very welcome!
