Birdwatching is a real passion of mine. Although I enjoy observing, photographing and filming all living creatures in nature, birds are my speciality. Unfortunately many birds are threatened nowadays and it is our common responsibility to protect them and their habitats. Finding rare birds is really cool for an ornithologist, but much of my time I also count breeding and non-breeding birds for local or national bird census projects. As the president of a local bird working group (Vogelwerkgroep Durmevallei, see link below) and local coördinator of several projects, I know that bird census information is very valuable for the protection and conservation of these beautiful creatures and their habitats.
Currently I use these optical instruments for observing birds:
Kowa TSN-883 Prominar ED 88mm Spotting Scope
Swarovski EL 10x42 Binoculars
