Scotland ........

JAG says the best Collie Nation he knows of is Scotland? but he will check/tartan for y'all. What a beaut day, too good to be stuck indoors with JAG, I'm taking Eggy out birding whilst he rebuilds a 486 for me, cya's. Lots of Herons between Hastings and Crib Point. Easily viewable from the new boardwalk sections.

There is also the Steiner Wildlife binoculars, which are "Guaranteed Shock Proof" although I haven't been game to test just how shock proof they are!!

Can't speak for Swarovski, but my previous Zeiss 10x40s were usable, although did need adjustment, after a Toyota rolled and came to rest on those bins on the Old Halls Creek Road a few years ago. The current Zeiss 10x42s are probably even more rugged, but have't been put to quite the same test. They have been dropped on stone and concrete many times and the rubber armouring is scratched and abraded from scraping on rock faces, but the optics are still perfect. They are heavy, and should
be worn with a wide neckband to prevent damage to the nerves passing from the neck into the shoulder and arm.
