Returned from holiday to see that a Red Backed Shrike had turned up at Dormans Pool near Saltholme. So 1st thing this morning I went over to view it (Shrikes are among my favourite birds). Initially it was showing at distance only but then it started to pose, much closer and I managed to digiscope some great shots of it. There were a lot of others there eventually and a few other digiscoping it too.

- 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
