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

Weardale - Tree Pipit


Spent my morning searching for Redstarts and Pied Flycatchers, although I heard a Redstart in Tunstall Res. Wood, I never saw despite searching for over an hour and a half. Saw GS Woodpeckers and loads of Nuthatch though also 2 Great Crested Grebes dispaying on the resevoir.

Moved on to Bollihope searching for Ring Ouzels but it was too busy with visitors there. However I did see this fine Tree Pipit - a first for the year for me. Also Stonechat, Wheatear, and Red Grouse.
