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

South Gare - Lapland Bunting

On sunday 25th Oct I was torn on going to see the Eastern Crowned Warbler at South Shields or to go for Lapland Bunting and possible Shore Lark at South Gare. Eventually decided on the latter to avoid the hoards of people.

Thanks to a local birder he put me straight onto the bird which could be approached really well, and it was almost too close for my scope. Managed to get loads of pics of it so I was pleased.
Then off to Saltholme to go for the Slavonian Grebe which I really want to get a photo of for my collection, however it remained at long distance. Also saw 2 Merlin there, as well as the usual stuff.
And even better news was that the South Shields bird hadnt been seen, so I hadn`t wasted my time going up there.
