My long-suffering maltreated Swarovski EL binoculars were bumped out of column 
when dropped a while back. I contacted the Sydney agent, who asked that I send 
them in for a look. From there they were shipped to Austria for repairs. Four 
weeks later, the binocs were returned, without bill, in immaculate condition. 
Apart from being in perfect realignment, the heavily worn green exterior (DEET 
repellent eats that stuff up) had been replaced, the indentation on front 
‘brow’ gone, and there is as-new fluidity in the focus wheel action. I love 
those guys.

The Pizzey and Knight field guide app for Australian birds is wonderful! Sure, 
‘Mark 1’ will attract plenty of suggestions for improvements for future updates 
(I have a couple), but then, most innovative processes work that way – and part 
of the process is that innovators in the digital communications age soon learn 
about the value of having thick skin. Nevertheless, this app is already a 
fantastic tool – and really fun to use - you'd be a mug to not give it a try. A 
nifty prospective last-minute Chrissy present?
Merry Christmas tomorrow everyone.
