Every keen birdwatcher needs a good pair of birdwatching binoculars. Whether you've just discovered a love for birding, or you've been a keen birder for years, we have a fantastic range of binoculars to suit everyone, even kids!

Children are some of the most enthusiastic birders, so getting them their very own pair of binoculars is a great way of encouraging their interest in nature. Kid's binoculars can be just as powerful as their adult counterparts, just smaller and lighter! The RSPB Puffin® binoculars are suitable for both adults and children, whether you wear glasses or not. They feature powerful magnification and crisp, clean image quality.

We've also got a great range of birding scopes. Scopes are very popular among birdwatchers because they offer a higher magnification level than binoculars, allowing better visibility for up-close birdwatching. Our range of birdwatching telescopes and accessories are perfect for experts and birding beginners alike; choose from the RSPB's own Avocet and Harrier models, or a range of other brands you can find in the shops on our larger reserves.

In support of Burton Mere Wetlands' new shop outlet where a broad range of RSPB optics can be tried and bought every day, we're hosting a Binocular and Telescope Open Weekend on 22 and 23 June, with an expert on hand to advise on choosing the best binoculars, telescopes and accessories to suit your needs. In addition to the RSPB range, there will be a variety of other brands to try and if you want, any of it can be ordered on the day for home delivery. Please note, the nature of the new shop here means items are not available to take away on the day; everything is mail order direct to your door with free delivery.

Profits from every purchase goes towards helping RSPB conservation work, and buying with us here at Burton Mere Wetlands, that money comes directly to us, helping us make the Dee Estuary reserve an even better place for birds, wildlife and people - so what better reason to browse and buy here?!
