Latest Product News, Events and Photos

We are always busy out and about at various events or field testing so keep up with what we are doing and what exciting new products are coming.  We also have our resident top birder Stuart Gillies posting some of his amazing digiscoping photos to show you what you can achieve with practice, the right equipment and lots of patience!

Viking Optical added 2 new photos.

With another #birdfair almost upon us we at #vikingoptical would just like to take a moment to reflect on the reason we are all involved with this amazing event.
As our products are used mainly for observing and enjoying wildlife it makes perfect sense that we would become heavily involved with conservation efforts.
We have been the optics partner for #RSPB for over 20 years, joint main sponsor of Birdfair for 13 years, #birdlife species champions for 2 species - Seychelles Paradise Flycatcher and Forest Owlet and a provider of optics to various projects in several countries which aim to engage people with nature and conservation.
It is these connections with organisations carrying out great work all over the planet which gives us the greatest satisfaction.
Birdfair has grown to become an event of global importance which has literally raised millions of pounds - it is an honour and a privilege to be involved.

Here is a short video made at #RSPBLochLeven on 7/8/17 about #phonescoping Please do take a look - it's not #springwatch standard I'm afraid but hopefully it will inspire some people to give it a try!
