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

Blacktoft Sands

Took advantage of a flexi day and went to Blacktoft Sands, it was such a nice day

Had 4 different people ask me about my Digiscope set up, I have made a card which I will hand out to people so the can see the results.


Saw 3 of my target birds today, Marsh Harrier (6 of them), Bearded Tit (5), and Spotted Redshank (9) Also saw snipe, Green Sandpiper, Ruff, Black Tailed Godwit, and Teal. There was a Barn Owl sat in a box about half mile away. But the highlight photo wise was a Spotted Flycatcher, it was a about 25 feet away and posed in the sunlight. The warden here said it was the 1st that he had seen here in 6 years.
