My auntie has given me my late uncle's bushnell binoculars and his bird book that he absolutely loved.
He was a very avid bird watcher and she said he would be so proud of me for carrying on his hobby and feeding the birds.
I know nothing about binoculars, are these ones any good??? As they are a 2010 model.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

tuwit said:Book of British Birds. Readers Digest/AA publication. Great artworks (imo). I hankered after it when it was originally published in1969 (?). I had one around fifty years ago.
We bought that particular book after visiting Sculthorpe Moor - it was one of the bird guides in the hides and we fell in love with the stunning illustrations. I really hope Kath keeps the book as it's so beautiful.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
Bushnell make very good optics, so you'll be plenty pleased with those, and a Readers Digest book, treasure it, they are extremely good books and a force to be reckoned with back in their day.
My son's first binocs (he no longer watches wildlife, a busy young man working, studying and trying to keep a home plus pets takes his time up today) were a small pair of Bushnells which I now have for viewing down the garden.
You'll find a lot of use for both the binocs and book, enjoy and have a Merry Christmas to you and your family.
