With millions of birds migrating back to the UK after spending the winter in warmer climates and fields and woodland blooming with colour once again, spring is one of the best seasons for enjoying the British countryside. For those who want to see more of glorious nature around the UK this spring, a pair of elegantly-designed binoculars from SWAROVSKI OPTIK, a world-leading manufacturer of long-range optics, are the ideal choice.

This migration season, rural explorers can choose to spot cuckoos in Dartmoor with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s compact CL Pocket binoculars, scan for house martins in the Yorkshire Dales with the CL Companion binoculars or observe ospreys hunting for fish in Scotland with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s EL 8×32 binoculars.

Cuckoos in Dartmoor with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Pocket Binoculars, From £580
Cuckoos return to the UK countryside from late March onwards and although the species has recently seen a decline in numbers due to loss of natural habitat and food, cuckoos can still be spotted in locations such as Dartmoor National Park, following their return from jungles in the Congo. For spotting cuckoos on the go, SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Pocket binoculars are the ideal choice thanks to their robust aluminum housing and conveniently designed foldable bridge, which allows the optics to fit into even the smallest of bags and pockets. Although compact in size, the ergonomic binoculars don’t compromise on quality and promise unrestricted viewing comfort. The CL Pocket binoculars offer unique optical excellence of the highest order in the compact range and are available in either 8x or 10x magnification, which provide impressive field of views of 119m/1,000m and 98m/1,000m, respectively.

Martins at Malham Cove with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Companion Binoculars, From £930
The glossy blue-black house martin is a relatively small bird that can usually be spotted building nests from mud below the eaves of buildings or even on the side of cliffs, such as those at Malham Cove in North Yorkshire. For those who want to spot the house martin’s beautiful forked tail and white underbelly while exploring the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the CL Companion binoculars are perfect for carrying on long walks, thanks to their light weight of 490g and compact size. The elegantly-designed binoculars fit perfectly in the hand and are available in either 8x or 10x magnification, ensuring viewing is smooth and jitter-free. The CL Companion binoculars also come with a bespoke accessory package, which consists of a field bag plus a carrying strap and is available in three designs: NORTHERN LIGHTS, URBAN JUNGLE and WILD NATURE.

Ospreys in the Highlands with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s EL 8×32 Binoculars, From £1,690
Occasionally mistaken for a large gull, the osprey is an impressive fish-eating bird of prey that has a white head with a distinctive brown eyestripe. The osprey is a protected species in the UK due to its decline in numbers over recent years following illegal killing and low breeding numbers but can still be spotted in the Scottish Highlands, nesting at lochs and hunting for fish. For those who are willing to wait quietly for an osprey sighting, SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s EL 8×32 binoculars are the ideal choice when size and weight are important factors. With a unique wrap-around grip, the EL 8×32 binoculars fit comfortably in a travellers hands and with an 8x magnification, they offer the largest possible 141-metre field-of-view, enabling wildlife lovers a steady view – even if they’re lucky enough to spot an osprey diving into the water for food. The binoculars are available in green or sand-brown and offer users crystal-clear, colour-true images with razor-sharp contours. For more information, visit SWAROVSKI OPTIK.
