It's worth bearing in mind that the PJ Grant book is now out of date in terms of how we classify some gulls. Herring Gull is now separated from Yellow-legged, so they are L argentatus and L...

Yes Common Terns. The 'adult' has a moult contrast in the primaries (inner 3 being new, and the outer 7 older) which separates from Arctic which should have all 10 primaries the same generation.

Do you have any ideas about why you might not be happy with the results so far?
Could it be to do with focus, vibration blur or something else?
Perhaps an idea of your set-up and a few examples might...

Here's a couple of random images from the GX80 through the Swaro Scope/20-60 zoom. I haven't used it too much for digiscoping, but I thought it worth sharing which lenses I've used to connect it to...

I got hold of an 80D recently, and had a go at digiscoping the Lammergeier that's been in the Peak District for the past few weeks (still there I think?) with it and my favourite digi-scoping...

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...

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...

I fully agree about carrying too much gear! Having said that, I don't think the Canon M6 ii is much bigger than the camera you have there. Bit heavier maybe. It would also have the advantage of being...
