Not just for wildlife experts, RSPB reserve shops stock a wide range of equipment suitable for different skill levels. The range includes RSPB and Viking binoculars and telescopes as well as other premium brands such as Swarovski and Leica.

Money raised through purchases at these events helps the RSPB reserve teams to continue to deliver their wildlife conservation work, advocacy and allows thousands of people every year to get closer to nature.

If you've been thinking about purchasing some optics, now's the chance to try out our whole range to see what suits you best. If you fancy a pair of binoculars or a telescope for the family, to spot nature in your own garden, or something to make your summer hikes or cycle rides that little bit extra special – pop along, our team would love to welcome you to our wonderful site. You don’t need to book, just drop-in!
