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

South Gare and Saltholme Sept 18th

Paid an early morning visit to South Gare to see if there was any sign of a passerine migration - of which there was not. Only the usual birds on the land, at sea there was a young Guillemot close in, and a Cormorant fishing right next to the pier.






At Saltholme I managed to see and digiscope a Pectoral Sandpiper, and a female Garganey at the Phil Stead hide, then later on there was a nice Whinchat near the layby on West Saltholme and it worked its way closer to the car.
