- 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

Great Spotted Woodpecker - Low Barns
It also gave me an opportunity to test out my new camera - a Canons SX40, a bridge camera - which I often carry for trying to catch flying shots or fast moving birds - and since it has a burst option of shooting 8 shots per second I thought i would try it on the Woodpeckers. Also to compare the shots against the digiscope - since the camera boast a 35x zoom
The photos below were from the same position using the Canon SX40 on burst mode.
