Always take my gear out with me as the main reason I got it was to record anything I find and it works brilliantly for that. 

Always toyed with the idea of entering some digiscoping competitions when I was researching my gear but now realise that it would take a lot of time and effort photographing the birds whereas I seem to spend most of my time trying to find them and visiting different places. 

Maybe over the summer I'll try my hand at a bit of photography.

 Here's a few that I took the other day in the sun.

Baby Mute Swan Castle Howard. f.4.5 1/400th sec ISO 200

Ad Female Blackbird Hes East f.4.5 1/200th sec ISO 250

Juv Dunnock Hes East f.4.5 1/80th sec ISO 250

Spent a grand total of about 10 mins taking these photos and then just a quick run through Photoscape adjusting brightness and contrast and a bit of sharpening. Could I improve with better software and more time?
