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

Black Guillemot -South Gare

Had another trip to South Gare then to Saltholme area today. Saw the South Gare Merlin having a go at the starlings and then the waders, both unsuccesful before it flew down the dunes. There were probably 15 Red Throated Divers in view today both sides of the pier. Also saw a lovely winter plumage Black Guillemot inside the pier off the lighthouse.

Just called in at the Phil Stead hide where it was fairly quiet, a nice male kestrel was sat on top of a post again, and a flock of 18 Long Tailed Tits passed through.

Had a hunt around North Gare for Short Eared Owl but a school trip put pay to that.
