DIPPER - LOW BARNS
I sat hidden for a while and just watched the bird foraging the rocks and collecting caddis flies, may flies and other unknown aqautic bugs, when it had a decent amount it headed back to the nest location.
It kept landing on the same rock, before flying up into the nest to feed the young.
When it was away from the nest I set my scope up and focused it on the rock.
I used my phone as a remote control and moved away from my scope and out of view of the bird.
This is a great technique for not disturbing birds as I can see a live image of the bird on my phone from 20 or 30 yards away.
It means importantly, that the bird is not at all aware of me and is not disturbed. Also I can get into a comfortable position and see the shot that I am taking.
The down side is that there is about a second time lag. This can make it difficult sometimes.
