    I started out making written notes while I was observing but that wasn't working out very well so I started using a small digital voice recorder and note taking became more of a joy.
    How do you take notes while observing?

    If I am taking notes I use a digital recorder as well.
    I leave it on the spreader bar of the mount.

    Thanks for the reply Gabby76 ;)
    My Allen binocular harness with case has a separate pocket inside and that is where I've been keeping mine.
    That reminds me that I have some recording to transcribe into my journal. I have been redoing an Esperanto artwork of mine so maybe when I'm finished I'll do that.

    I hate taking notes, it distracts me. I'm afraid to miss something important at this point. So if you need to remember something, I record it on a dictaphone, which I always have in my pocket while watching
