It is now late December and the past month as been very cold with frosts and ice and now snow
Buzzards are now seen regularly from the shop along with Sparrowhawks and the odd Kestrel and Red Kite and Peregrine.

The feeders are busy with Goldfinch,House Sparrows and the usual Tits which include Coal and a few sightings of Nuthatch also a 60+ Collared Dove roost. Voles, Rats and Mice are feeding below the feeders.

We are stocking Vanguard binos and scopes and also some new Hawke models. Opticron have a large range including the excellent DBA VHD from £579 and the Verano VHD.

The new Opticron Traveller ED range is proving to be a really big hit.

In the compact range we have the Zeiss Victories in 8/10x25 which are a good match for the Swarovski compacts.

Swarovski and Zeiss at the top end of the price range are still dominating the market with the brilliant Zeiss SF and Conquest. Swarovski Field Pros and the excellent new CL companions and also the Pocket range of compacts. Also we have the new Nikon Monarch HG.
Midrange is dominated by Opticron,Hawke, Vanguard and our own Delta brand with the SL3 being a best seller and a new Delta SL2 ED on it way.

At the lower end of the price range the Opticron Discovery and Trailfinder and the Explorer ED are very good value for money products.And priced just above these are the new Opticron Naturas ED which are proving to be very popular.
At the moment at the top end of the spotting scopes are the Swarovski ATX/STX modular systems which offer unbeatable performance so far.

The cheaper Swarovski ATS/STS80/65 is still proving to be really popular the optics in these where upgraded from the earlier ATM/STM so offer excellent value for money.
Due early in the new year will be a Zeiss Harpia spotting scope with similar specs to the Swarovski ATX range,so the battle will then begin for the top scope position.
Priced a little bit lower is the new Zeiss Gavia 85 spotting scope

Mid price range is dominated by the Opticron ES80 4 ED.which as just been upgraded with a dual focusing,rapid and fine.

For a cheaper scopes Vanguard and Hawke are very popular.

Whilst with the small lightweight/travel scopes the upgraded Opticron MM4 range is by far the most popular .
A merry Christmas and a happy new year,

Dave and Bernie.
