- 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

Isle of Mull - day1
Ist day started off with a bang. A peregrine falcon flew past the room window and landed on a chuch about 20yards away. Grabbed my camera and ran downstairs and got some nice photos of a male bird - this was before breakfast. Drove over to Calgary bay and Trishnish. Plenty of Common Buzzards about. Saw Wheatears, Meadow and Rock Pipits, shags, Hooded Crows, and watched 2 Cuckoos looking for prospective nests to lay in. meadow Pipits were not happy. Saw a possible Golden Eagle but there was no place safe to stop the car. Saw dolphin on way in to Tobermory yesterday. Doing this from IPad so no photos yet, most birds a bit distant today, on a wildlife tour tomorrow.
