Other Birding Equipment & Accessories


Looking for a bird hide for your local reserve or just a way to scare away those neighbourhood moggies? Then take a look at the suppliers below.

I review accessories and am happy to do this but please do not assume that sending me a freebie guarantees a good review… if I publish a review it will reflect my true feelings and experience. However, I’m not out to hurt anyone’s sales so if you are unhappy with the review I won’t run it, but I will not alter anything I say (unless its an error of fact).

There are Fatbirder separate pages for some essential birding equipment; optics (both retail and manufacturers for repairs etc., bird food, outdoor clothing and so on.

Like any other hobbyists we all like to buy kit that might prove useful… but I have heard it said of fishing that more anglers are caught by equipment than are fish, so we probably all have something tucked away in a drawer that we thought, at the time, was a great idea.. but turned out to be impressive to us, but useless for birding.
