About Me

My photo
I have been digiscoping for around 18 years now and through persistence and good equipment I am getting great results. I use a Swarovski 80hd spotting scope and a Sony RX100 camera which has just replaced my old faithful Nikon P5100. The majority of my bird watching takes place in County Durham in England which has a variety of different habitats from coast to moors. Digiscoping is great because it allows me to get good photos without disturbing birds. VIEW THE LATEST PHOTOBOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

Bishop Middleham, Crookfoot Resevoir

Spent the morning at Bishop Middleham, my first time to the Durham Bird Club hide since it was opened. Plenty of Ruff, Little Grebe, Great Crested Grebe, Greenshank, 3 Green Sandpiper, 6 Common Sandpiper, 4 Snipe, Pochard and 2 Heron + the usual stuff of course. Moved onto Crookfoot after someone had said they had seen the Hurworth Burn Osprey fly towards Crookfoot Res. Spent 2 hours there but no sign of it. Loads of Great Crested Grebe, and 2 kingfisher. I really like this location its so peaceful.
