Are you are interested in a new pair of binoculars, or want to try a telescope, but not sure what to look for or what the numbers mean?

Join us for our hands on weekends, where our lovely team of staff and volunteers are waiting to give you expert advice to help you choose the right products for you.

We have a wide range of choice, and stock available to take away on the day. The events are to be held outside, unless the weather prevents this, so it gives you a great opportunity to try products where you need them – outside on the reserve.

These are free events, however, normal admission charges do apply for non-member visitors wanting to head around the reserve too.
