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

Desert Wheatear




Spent all morning at Boulby watching and digiscoping a Desert Wheatear, which normally frequents around North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, so it is well off track. The light was good so there was no excuses today.

The bird kept doing a circuit of a quarter of the field, luckily fairly near the road. I was well pleased with seeing this rarity, another first for me. It is a smashing bird - a male not quite in full colour.
