Birdwatching is the new black … well khaki or camel perhaps

Birdwatchers span a range of shapes, sizes and approaches. At one end, you’ll see some in their various shades of Kathmandu merchandise, camouflaged from head to toe in khaki and sensible hats, with $2000 Swarovski or Zeiss binoculars and twitching in their earnestness. And then there are the other kind, the irreverent chaps (and they are mainly chaps) out for a good time in the bush. You can find somewhere on the continuum where you’ll fit, so do yourself a favour, take the advice in this handy introduction and I’ll see you out there.
