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

Tunstall Resevoir

Had a look up to Tunstall Res again to try and find the Redstarts and Pied Flycatchers, as soon as I walked into the wood I could hear a Redstart singing. I soon located and kept a watch on it. It regularly came down low as it was windy in the tree tops - this enabled me to get my best shots yet of a redstart.
A walk further along the wood and I could hear a Pied Flycatcher and again I located it but it wouldnt stay still for longer than a few seconds - no good for digiscoping. But on my return walk I spotted and managed a quick slightly blurred shot. I talked to a couple of guys who had said they had seen nothing yet on my return I saw and heard the redstart at the begining of the wood.
A look down to Low Barns and I had spotted two Tawny Owl chicks - one in the box and one under the box - only poor photos managed. A good morning out - I will retry for the Owls one evening
