HEAT HAZE AVOID­ANCE

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

No mat­ter how much you pay for your op­tics, no mat­ter how crys­tal clear your im­age, heat haze is go­ing to ruin what you can see. You sim­ply can’t beat it, but you can try to avoid it. There is no spe­cial, amaz­ing way to beat the ef­fects of the sun, of course, just use of com­mon sense. Take ad­van­tage of the ex­tended days of mid­sum­mer and go out bird­ing be­fore the heat of the day starts tak­ing its toll on your bird­watch­ing. Sim­i­larly, go out late for the rel­a­tive cool of what passes for evening in July. The added ad­van­tage is that there is gen­er­ally much more bird ac­tiv­ity when the sun is low. Of course, if the sun is not ru­in­ing every­thing, then you can bird all day!
