Article on Swarovski Optik Blog

An many of you will know from reading my blog, I have a pair of Swarovski Optik CL Companian 10 x 32 binoculars.  They are perfect for me because they are so light, but still giving me the performance I need especially for world birding.

This summer, I used a harness strap whilst in East Africa, which worked really well distributing the weight and stopping me from getting binocular neck.

This is an article that was published on the Swarovski Optik blog, about my birding trip to East Africa and seeing my 4000th bird in the world.

Please can you post a comment if you like the article.
