Dear fellow nature lovers,


I am posing a question around the use of high powered torches for viewing
our nocturnal counterparts.

What are the thoughts around a super bright rechargeable torch (similar to
the 1,000,000 candle power one I purchased just the other day...) doing any
damage to our little friends eyes on a dark night? Not that I would have
done such a thing....

PS. Any discovery of a pair of White-throated Nightjars and a pair of Sooty
Owls in Bunyip State Forest, Victoria, with burned out retinas since Tuesday
night would be purely coincidental...
