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

Kingfisher at Low Barns

At last some kingfishers showing well at Low Barns - again in August. The kingfisher in the photo is a young kingfisher with a shortish beak. There were plenty in the hide getting photos of it - no surprise as it was camera club night. There was also a Green Woodpecker hanging around the gardens at the back of the visitor centre and was calling regularly.

Quite pleased with these photos - they were quite difficult as the sun was behind the bird making the water dazzling white. I know others got better photos though - young David did well - again. A tawny owl was also calling down towards the west pasture hide at dusk.
