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

Short Eared Owls - Northumberland






Had a great day in Northumberland, I saw 3 of my 4 target birds today, Great Grey Shrike, Short Eared Owls and Greater Yellowlegs.


Started off with the Shrike, although it was 120 yards away and against the sun. The Short Eared Owls took some finding but when I did they were spectacular, there was 7 or 8 birds all in the same location.


Then I moved on to try for the Greater Yellowlegs - a new bird for me, but it gave me the run around and remained quite distant most of the time.
