Birdwatching Equipment I Recommend
As a lifelong birdwatcher I have used a large number of binoculars, telescopes, cameras, identification guides and other birdwatching equipment. In this lens I will talk about the birdwatching equipment that I currently use and which has really enhanced my birdwatching over the last 7 years. I have been a professional birdwatcher since January 2008 and I have found a set up that is not only very effective but is reasonably priced.
Helm Bird Identification Guides
I have been birdwatching for more than 30 years and as I have become a more serious ornithologist I have become more and more aware of how good the books in the Helm series are, but there is no point in waiting to become an experienced birdwatcher before getting these books; start with the best.
The Life of Birds
The Life of Birds is a fantastic, ten-part documentary BBC televison series first broadcast in 1998. Narrated by David Attenborough, The Life of Birds contains some of the most memorable footage of bird behaviour ever seen, including many species never filmed before: it is a wonderful series and a must see for any bird lover from armchair bird enthusiast to serious ornithologist, indeed, it is bound to convert many non-birdwatchers into bird enthusiasts.
