    Forgot to say I carry my camera in a holster, cross shoulder style. I always have binoculars round my neck, and either a mulepack or backpack with my telescope and tripod combos. I find the holster option a good compromise as I don’t want to be holding the camera all the time, but of course for...

    I tried digiscoping a good few years back, but I believe a camera on it’s own is more versatile and will give more consistent results. This is true especially with moving subjects and when time is of the essence as you describe. I class myself as someone who mainly wants record shots rather...

    How to catch a King Cobra

    My favoured method would be having someone like him on speed dial! That’s one of those things where you might know the principles, but are still too πŸ“ (or maybe sensible) to even think about attempting, makes me glad we only have Adders here!

    Love watches!

    I’m a bit of a pilot watch fan and have worn my STOWA A dial birding on occasion. If I were to wear a proper watch in the field now it would likely be my Laco as it is cheaper, but I instead wear my Samsung smartwatch as I get bird sightings pop up on screen which I now find really useful as it...

    I think you can as long as the image is big enough - the magnifying glass looks to be disabled when the image is really small, but is enabled for me when the image is fairly large, and regardless, you can pinch to zoom on a tablet in addition to the magnifying glass tool - presumably ctrl and...

    Click on it after liking, a selection comes up I think. .....edit, press and hold, not sure if the little face with hearts for eyes I just did for you counts as a like though πŸ˜‚

    Think it might just be re likes alone, not quotes. When I first opened the new site there was a notification message about trophies for numbers of likes, but think that may have been turned off as not particularly relevant to our needs πŸ‘

    Would using a default filter for watched threads serve your purpose?.... As an example if you say wanted to watch just the ID forum for new posts, you can watch that thread with the watch option, and then under New posts in the filter on the right hand side, select unread threads and watched...

    .....if you are on a mobile, in portrait, signatures don’t look to appear - turn to landscape and they may - the forum seems to know what type of device and orientation you are viewing, and tries to best fit everything for us which is clever.
