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

Teesdale - Black Grouse 10th April



Decided to get up real early and watch the Black Grouse do their displaying (Lech). So up at 5 and watching the grouse at 6, although they were not in their usual place I did find them. They were perhaps 120 yards away which was pushing it for digiscoping, but meant I could safely watch them without any disturbance.

Managed to take a few video clips which shows 2 males leching, altogether there were 12 males in the lech.

Also saw my first Redstart and Ring Ouzel of the year, plus Golden Plover, Snipe, Woodcock and heard a Merlin but didnt see it.
