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

Water Rail - Saltholme



I went to South Gare initially in the hope of Snow Buntings or Merlin, but there was no sign of either, there weren't even any Divers on the sea, although it was low tide.

So I retreated back to RSPB Saltholme and was reward by the Water Rail showing off nicely in the sun. This is normally quite a reclusive bird so its good to get the opportunity get nice shots of it when it does show. I again had a few people enquiring and being impressed by the digiscope set up. (They don't see the shots that get binned lol).
