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

Fungi -Sept 4th

Fungi morning




Because the birding is fairly quiet at the moment and conditions were excellent I decided to go to a favourite wood to get some photos of various fungi and mushrooms in particular the Fly Agaric.

In this wood there are 2 particular areas that the Fly Agaric seem to be more abundant - with mainly birch and conifer trees around. So I spent the morning on my knees and belly getting some upclose photos - and thoroughly enjoyed it - even though the ground was soaking.


I also saw 3 buzzards, green and great spotted woodpecker, 2 treecreeper and a family of about 10 goldcrest.
