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

Teesdale Black Grouse



The Black Grouse were out in force today, I saw them at 3 different locations, 2 new to me. Included was a flock of about 40 birds flying over the moors high up in Teesdale, I wasn't sure what they were until I got the bins on them as I didn't expect such a big flock.


Plenty of snow up there too and -5 was the lowest I got today. The young males look strange as their plumage is changing from the mottled brown to the black.

  1. The Grouse look great in the snow. Really like the shot in the tree, another great collection of shots looking forward to getting up there! Brilliant
