Had a ride up the dales today and saw 2 goshawks, sadly not displaying, but they looked really good in the early morning sun (undisclosed site). However there was a lot of shooting going on (rough shooting for pheasant). I decided to move on, somehow I overshot my house and ended up watching the Great Grey Shrike at Coatham Stob and there were at least 2 Short Eared Owls quartering the area. Met some friendly bird watchers from Yorkshire whilst there. All in all a good day and it was pleasant to be out in the frost and snow up the dales.

- 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
