When hiking, camping and climbing it is always great to see some wildlife. Birds can often be heard or seen out in the countryside. Keeping an eye out for birds can add another dimension to your outdoor experience. If you are going to do some birdwatching there is some additional equipment that you could take with you. The gear that you will need will depend upon the nature of your trip:

  • What time of year will you be going?
  • What are anticipated weather conditions?
  • What is duration of trip?
  • Where will you sleep overnight?
