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

Barn Owls

Had a trip outside of the county today to view a nice Barn Owl site, it had a nest right next to a public footpath so was quite accessible and they seemed used to people.
The photos were digiscoped from about 40 yards away to avoid disturbance, and the owls were not bothered at all.

Its great to see an owl nesting in a natural hole rather than boxes and hopefully these will do well - location is kept a secret. The shot with the adult bird coming in might have been good if it wasnt overexposed
