My fiend has this scope that is no longer needed and has asked me to help him try and sell it. He has only had it for just over 2 years and is in immaculate condition and is a cracking scope.

If interested leave a details in comments section.

You can add (see below) to the list of stunning birds already seen through the eye piece.

3 Shelduck, 2 Gadwall, 1 Lapwing circling Park playing fields (area 37) then N 07:25, 1 Water Rail, 2 Redwing, 20+ Goldfinch SW over St John's Lodge a.30 at 09:45, 1 Siskin; no Shovelers for 1st time this year.
As expected, a male Wren is building a nest in the upturned roots of the tree that fell through the fence just inside the NE gate to Queen Mary's Gardens a.18, bringing in small dead leaves at a rate of knots. Jay singing in a.17 nearby. Crow adding twigs to nest at NE end of Longbridge Island a.36.

10 Mar:
1♂ Wood Duck roosting on SE shore of Heron Island area 8, 3 Meadow Pipit NW 07:10 past Hub a.38 - the first passerine migrants I've seen this spring apart from thrushes.
For a second day at least, the male Wren is packing leaves into his nest in a.18, trying to impress. :)
