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

Saltholme March 21st Hooded Merganser

Spent ages watching this rare bird fish and swim in a circuit around the Salholme Hide area. It was fishing up the creek where I managed to digiscope some half decent shots of it.
It got really close to the hide but the sun was glaring off the water which just silhouetted the bird - this bird has been around the area all winter, and is a North American bird.
