The one Pentax sponsored where we talk about Tristan’s ‘Giving my Right Arm’ fundraising initiative and allude to a typically
lyrical curse-laden promotion of the initiative by Tom on BirdingBlogs), review a range of Pentax binoculars supplied by Pentax Sports Optics for our deliberations, discuss an excerpt from a longer Talking Naturally interview with BTO Council member Keith Betton on seeing Peru’s Endangered and little-known Long-whiskered Owlet, and chat about the finding of a Western Bonelli’s Warbler just yards from Tom’s front door.

And your Panel today consists of…
- Me, Charlie Moores, a freelance writer and podcaster (and now sadly intermittent birder) who either lives in a warm little cottage in north Wiltshire with his family or in a cold ‘podding shed’ editing an endless series of podcasts.
- John Hague, a birding psychiatric nurse from Barnsley who now lives in Leicester where he’s a prominent member of the Leicester and Rutland Ornithological Society. John blogs extensively at The Drunkbirder where he rants “about the world and the absurdities of life“.
- Tom McKinney, the Derbyshire-based birder and award-winning musician who founded The House of Bedlam and gigs as part of Tango 5, and author of the much-missed Skills Bills blog. Tom now blogs weekly at Birdingblogs.com/TomMcKinney.
- Tristan Reid, aka ‘binocularface’, a well-known member of the Brit birding and twitching scene (to quote from Tristan’s binocularface blog “Some may call me obsessive; but I love to see rare and scarce birds and will travel anywhere within the UK and Ireland to see them!”) who lives in Cumbria.
