Description:

I get one or two HS in the garden on a regular if infrequent basis so it’s great to see a small flock for once. There are at least eight so probably a single family. It was really great to see them all dust bathing.
Interesting experiment in digiscoping. the aperture of my new(ish) smartphone is not quite an exact match for the scope whereas my older (non smart) phone was an almost perfect match. Can be overcome by increasing the zoom on the phone’s camera.
