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

Sunderland area

Went specifally to see the Black Necked Grebe that had been seen up on Wearside, first shock I got was the 4 inches of snow that was up there - none in Darlington to speak of. Found the place easily with other birders watching the bird - it was unbelievably approachable coming to within a couple of feet. But it spent more time under water than above - still got some decent shots.
Then down to Hartlepool - Eiders, Purple Sandpipers, Great Northern Diver, RB Mergansers. It was mission achieved today after last weekends dissappointment.
