Best Father’s Day Gifts for a Birdwatching Dad
In 2018 Father’s Day falls on Sunday 17th June. So now’s the time to start gift-hunting. If your dad is a keen birdwatcher, there are some great presents out there. Show him how much you care with these Father’s Day gifts, all perfect for bird-obsessed dads.
Any birdwatcher worth their salt will own a pair of binoculars. But find out whether your dad’s pair offer the best magnification and lens size. You could treat him to a state-of-the-art pair of birding binoculars to take his hobby to the next level.
Bird Feeding Gift Box
Let your dad enjoy his twitching hobby from the comfort of his own home. With a bird feeder gift box he can attract a wide variety of birds to his garden. You could even set up a bird seed subscription so he receives seasonal seed blends throughout the year – it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Bird Watching Day Out
Why not book a trip for two to a local wildlife reserve? Your dad will be able to spot a wide variety of bird species and enjoy some quality time with you to boot.
Bird of Prey Experience
Perhaps your dad would like to get up close to some of the biggest birds in the UK. Take him on a bird of prey experience (there are tons of options around the country). Depending on where you choose, he could have the option to fly eagles, falcons or owls and learn all about these top avian predators.
If your dad likes to photograph the birds that he comes across, he might appreciate some new camera equipment. A new tripod, a new lens or just a fancy new camera case could be just the ticket.
Birdwatching Books or Apps
There are plenty of great books out there for birdwatchers. Many offer a comprehensive guide to identifying birds in the UK. And if your dad is a little more tech-savvy, you could treat him to a birdwatching app for his smartphone instead. These interactive guides offer recordings of bird song, bird identifying tools and the option to record bird sightings too.
Whether your dad is a budding birdwatcher or a dedicated twitcher, he’s sure to love one of these fantastic Father’s Day gifts.
