Very good book with colour photos throughout. Would highly recommend
Been looking for some new binoculars for a while. These are lightweight and have an excellent image. A bit expensive but you get what you pay for.
I purchased the Bresser Pirsch 8x42 binoculars for my wife's birthday. The Collins Guide was a very welcome bonus.
The price was competitive, service and communication impeccable. The binoculars were despatched promptly and packaged superbly in high grade bubble wrap.
I had a minor query which James dealt with on the phone the same day.
My first dealings with this company and very happy to recommend them.
I have had cheap binoculars in the past. The quality of the Bresser is so much better. Feel great in the hand, well built, not too heavy, sharp bright image. Excellent warranty too. Quality case and straps.
The book , which I've used before plus binoculars with harness/pouch and lens wipes were given as a birthday gift. The recipient was very pleased. I shall use stealthbirding again to upgrade my own binoculars. Service is both personal and friendly.
Chosen as the free gift to accompany the very successful binoculars purchased as a birthday present for my husband. Interesting to have as a supplement to Collins Bird Guide to Britain & Europe.
