Are you just starting out birdwatching and don't know where to begin, looking to upgrade those old binoculars or thinking about getting your first telescope? Come along to Abberton Reservoir Visitor Centre and let our friendly Optics Team help and advise you. Our range of binoculars, telescopes, tripods and accessories is carefully selected for quality, price and value for money and will be on display so you can try before you buy. Mainly Opticron and Hawke. Special offers and secondhand available. All profits go to EWT to support our conservation work around the county.
