I can't recommend an exact Nikon lens for digiscoping as I use Canon and Panasonic cameras through a Swarovski scope, but a Nikon Camera and lens are pictured here. Might be worth exploring if you...

Just a reminder that BF is a site dedicated to wild birds in all their forms, even if some of them might appear as 'monstrosities' to some. Gulls often get a bad reputation, and recently here in the...

Yes I've tried using the self-timer, and of course it works, but sometimes 2 seconds is too long to wait! In such cases recording video is perhaps the better option with this camera so far, though...

These two were taken with a Canon 600D & 40mm STM through the Swarovski ATS80HD. So far I haven't had as much success using the Panasonic GX80 for stills as I have with the Canon. Perhaps because so...

A couple of GX80 stills from earlier this month of the Asian Desert Warbler on Holy Island. They were manual-focussed using the scope's focuser, while I followed the bird using the EVF on the...

As you probably know there's a mini influx of Blyth's Reed Warbler going on in the UK at the moment. Having listened to a few recordings online, that's where my money would be.

There is clearly...

2cy Med Gull (or first summer, if you prefer). There is a suggestion in the link that this might be a hybrid. However I can't see anything to suggest why. Maybe more pics would offer a clue?...
