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.
Selected as free gift option to accompany binoculars purchased for my wife as a present. She is very happy with both.
Very pleased with my birthday present. We have been able to settle a couple of arguments as to what bird's are in our garden, as well as identifying birds on our walks.
I am delighted with my Collins Book of British Birds, it has helped me enormously to identify birds in my garden.
