S1 Episode 26: Gear – Charles Hood & Fiona Reid


From binoculars to bat detectors, and from thermal scopes to thermarest pillows, we all have our own preferences for mammalwatching gear. We are joined by Charles Hood and Fiona Reid to discuss our kit and share some packing hacks that can make life a little more comfortable on a trip ….. because any fool can be uncomfortable in the bush!

We had so much to talk about we decided to split this episode into 2 parts, though we didn’t make a video.


 Here is a list of some of the gear we about. And here are the exhibitors at the USA’s National Rifle Association annual conference in 2022. Cover art – Travelling Light – by Charles Foley.
