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

Saltholme and Seal Sands

Had a day out today at Saltholme first to be greeted by a smashing male Kestrel just perched on top of small trees to east of Phil Stead hide.
From the hide there were Dunlin, Snipe, Black Tailed Godwit, Water Rail, Wren, and a Sparrowhawk which took a wading Dunlin.

Then because it was so busy at Saltholme I went to Seal Sands, where the highlight was 2 Long Tailed Duck, and a Black Throated Diver. Also Red Breasted Merganser, Great Crested Grebe, Gadwall and Bar Tailed Godwit.

The Common Seals were very close to the road today, posing nicely, this one even decided to wave at me.
