They don't have the kit as yet, but I told the guy he needed a Helion XP50 for a spotter and WT1-75-3 for a scope plus the special mount for the scope that Clive sells and a picatinney rail from Alan Rhone to fit on top of the guys' Tikka 595
The RSPB guy wasn't too happy about not getting the scope from SC.

Re RSPB fox control: they need alll the help they can get- when they took over the eider duck colony near to Slains, there were 3000+ breeding pairs; they decided to fence round the area, conveniently leaving 'badger' gates. That season, the total number of young eider fledged was, out of all those nests, out of all those eggs, was, er....

ONE! Yes, one solitary eider duckling made it. Gotta luv 'em, eh?

Ah, but you miss the point of all these big charities. Yes they may have completely wiped out future colonies but they fenced it all off (looks good in begging the brochures). They left badgers gates (looks good in the begging brochures) and they care for 3000 pairs of feathery quack quacks (looks good in the begging brochures)
Just think of the salary increases and bonuses that would get ... Job done, pockets lined and pensions sorted.
