Some advice from list members would be appreciated on currently available 
spotting scopes for birding.  As a first time prospective buyer of one, 
I'm keen to hear people's thoughts on what they would recommend.

I am not a regular wader-viewer and don't especially know the group very

the coast or at large wetlands.

It would need to be 
- durable, 
- weather and water proof and 
- easy to use for spectacle wearers.

I quite like the idea of using the angled eyepiece but am open to people's 
thoughts on this as well.

Thoughts on the current Swarovski and Leica spotting scopes would be most 
welcome and whether I should be considering a zoom eyepiece and other
