01 The Pod A ready-made op­tion, the Pod (http://the­pod.ca/) comes with a screw that at­taches to your Nikon, and a strap for your lens. 02 Camo bean­bag The de­sign of this bean­bag from www.wildlife watch­ing­sup­plies.co.uk, means you can stand it on one end for added height. 03 Plas­tic beads For a more durable, wa­ter­proof filler, try bean­bag pel­lets – we used these Darice Craft ones (www.darice.com). 04 Wild seed Take a tip from wildlife pho­tog­ra­phers and fill your bag with seed mix that you can also scat­ter to at­tract gar­den birds. Don’t get the seed wet, though, or it will sprout or rot. 05 Jumper In a hurry to get a shot? Just roll up your jumper and wedge it un­der your D-SLR for a makeshift cush­ion in an in­stant.
