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

Murcia, Spain

Just had a week in Spain, doing some birdwatching alongside a general holiday, even though I took my digiscoping gear, I didn't manage to digiscope much, although I saw 50 + species of birds, must of it was too distant and affected by heat haze. An impressive 16 were new species for me which included, Short Toed Eagle, Bonellis Eagle, Black Wheatear, Roller, Thekla, Calandra and Crested Larks, Spotless Starling and Black Winged Stilts. Probably too late for the Bee-Eaters which I really wanted to see, However it was enjoyable
