The British Birdwatching Fair, popularly known as Birdfair, is always a highlight in the year for the Leica Birding team. This year, however, was extra special – with the event seeing the launch of our new Noctivid binoculars.
The U.K. is an important country for optics in the nature market and with the imminent launch of Leica’s exciting new binocular, a number of important nature market retailers were invited to the HQ in Wetzlar to hear a presentation from product manager Nanette Roland and to thoroughly test the new Noctivid binocular.
Seit gut vier Jahren gibt es den Klassiker Geovid in der vierten Generation auf dem Markt. Wir testeten exklusiv die beiden Spitzenmodelle aus Wetzlar in den Bergen, in Afrika und in heimischen Gefilden, bei Vogelbeobachtungen aller Art, von dem Balzverhalten der Amseln vorm Küchenfenster, über die Brutpflege der Störche vom Foto-Tarnnetz aus bis hin zur Jagdtaktik des afrikanischen Habichtsadlers in Nigeria.

What do you do when a first U.S. record shows up about two hours from where you live?

We are led to the darkest, dingiest corner of this large cruel beast, the frantic beating of wings against metal cages surround us. “It’s for our father,” we had told the man, “he has just moved here and he wants to see what you have before he buys.”
