Digiscoping on Rainham Marsh

I decided to leave the DSLR camera and lens at home for this afternoons visit to Rainham Marsh RSPB reserve, opting instead for my scope and Meopta iPhone adapter set-up. The images below are of three of the birds you would expect to see on the marsh at this time of year and were all taken at varying long range distances, which would have been out of reach for my usual DSLR camera and lens.

The results are never going to win any photographic prizes but are more than satisfactory considering the distance they were captured at. I've tried to estimate the distance to give you an idea of how far away I was to each subject.

A useful tool to have to hand when you need a little bit more reach and don't own a large super telephoto lens.
