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

South Gare

I arrived a little too late at South Gare this morning, missed some owls and 2 merlin by just a few minutes apparently. However I did see 4 Short Eared Owls and there had been some who had seen 8 or 9 and someone else had spotted 2 more over the sea just before I left, although I never picked up on them. These birds had just arrived off the sea - I have never seen an Owl flying over the sea before.

There were quite a few more blackbirds around than normal, 11 Fieldfares and a couple of Redwing. There was a group of 5 Twite flying around and also saw a Woodcock which had also just arrived.

Tomorrow promises to be good with more easterly winds, and also a Black Redstart had been reported there again late on today.
