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

Decided to have an early start again this morning, and I was up at Bollihope by 7, its nice to be there with no other people about, the moorland birds were in fine voice again - except the Ring Ouzels, I did see one straight away in the top of a bush but it flew down quickly into the dead bracken - not to be seen again, I saw 4 other Ouzels and strangely they were all male (in different locations) - I didnt see a female.

Then I got soaked through in a heavy downpour 2 miles away from the car.
There was also Buzzard, loads of Red Grouse, Grey Wagtails, Golden Plover, Oystercatchers and Redshank around, and a fine Wren singing at the top of his voice.
