Simon, I don't carry a scope, but often when trying to find roosting birds at long distance (especially well camouflaged ones, or young birds hiding in survival mode) my 8x43 just aren't up to it. I can locate a bird by taking a pic (using D7200 + 600mm Tamron in 1.3x crop mode) of where I think they are (or have known them to be before) and then zooming in review to find them.
