Get incredible reach this winter with a fantastic pair of binoculars. We’ve got a huge range of binoculars to suit all needs and budgets, so why not try a spot of birdwatching and see what you can discover.
You might think that winter will be a difficult time for spotting wildlife, but many animals will be on the search for food and large flocks of birds such as waxwings migrate to the UK during winter. This makes it the perfect opportunity to get out and spot birds you may not see at other times in the year.
The RSPB has nature reserves across the UK, which are perfect for viewing a wide variety of wildlife in winter as well as other times of the year. At costal locations birds are off searching for food during low tide, so the best time to view them is high tide. It’s a good idea to find a viewing position an hour or so before your chosen bird is expected to come back from feeding so you can get great views of them returning.
Head to the town at dusk and you may spot starlings “murmurating” as they share information, keep warm and stick together for safety. Woodlands are great for spotting birds as they search for food. They may be difficult to see at first but if you listen for their calls to each other you’re sure to spy them.
Wrap up warm, grab yourself some binoculars and head outdoors this winter to enjoy wildlife in its natural habitat.
