My review of the Levenhuk Blaze 30-90x90 Spotting Scope has gone live on BSSR: http://www.bestspottingscopereviews.com/LevenhukBlaze30-90x90SpottingScope-14.htm
The 30-90x variable magnification eye-piece, combined with a large 90mm diameter objective lens and good quality optical elements and coatings ensure

This morning we started getting the large #veggie patch and small #orchid back into shape with the help of the previous owner who still keeps his very old #JohnDeere #tractor in the barn and very kindly offered to till the soil for us. You can just see the row of #cherrytrees now just in blossom #gardening #veggiepatch #France

Race - Ronde des 3 Vallees - a hilly course starting in #Vares with a very strong wind which made for very hard racing with plenty of echelons on the rolling terrain between the hills. A bunch of about 60 started, which was reduced to about 25 after some of the bigger climbs. I managed to stay near the front on the climbs and tried to get into a few breaks towards the end, one with about 8km and then another at about 6km to go but neither succeed. A couple of guys got away in the last few kilometers, one surviving to win at the end and I managed to finish 10th after the "sprint" up a short but fairly steep climb to the line which blew the now very reduced and tired bunch to pieces. Happy that I was up there on the climbs, but a little disappointed that I didn't have "it" at the end to finish a little higher up in the placings. Many thanks to all at #CYCLO4 Haut Agenais, but especially teammate Denis Gouget and Marie Claude and Joël for the videos, photos, back-up and most importantly the drinks and cake at the end! #cycling #France #lotetgaronne #nofilter #sidi +Lazer Sport​

After a 3.5 hour ride in the cold winter rain, I have been able to update my Castelli CW.3.0 Gloves Review to include their waterproofing credentials: http://www.chirundu.com/cycling/castelli-cw-3-0-gloves-review/ #cycling #Castelli +CastelliCycling RaceWear 
Spending the summers in France and then going over to Africa for the northern hemisphere winters, I've been lucky over the last few years in that I have managed

I currently live in the South of France, but was born and grew up in Zimbabwe. I am passionate about wildlife, travel and am a keen bird and wildlife photographer. 

I am also  a qualified Field Guide (safari guide) and have worked on and managed safari lodges in South Africa. 

I own and run Best Binocular Reviews, Chirundu.comthe Safari Holiday Guide and a few others that do their best to keep me behind a desk, but am always looking for an excuse to get back into the bush.

Most importantly - I am the husband to my beautiful wife, Sharon and father to my fantastic daughter Kara.

Great little restaurant, we had a very good 3 & 4 course fixed price lunch - the food was good to very good, the interior was nice and cosy, but as it was a nice day, we sat out on the front terrace which was very pleasant.

We had some great seafood as well as a good steak and peri-peri chicken all in a beautiful old house. Also had a cracking Irish Coffie to finish with. Highly reccommend.
