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

Little Owl - Weardale

I had a tour of Teesdale and Weardale today, again searching for the elusive Merlin - no joy there. I got distracted with a Green Woodpecker, trying to get close enough for a photo, but I only got poor record shots of it.

  But it was good to see in this location after about a years absence.  Other notable birds were Black Grouse, Ring Ouzel (female), family of Goldcrests, Great Spotted Woodpecker,

and this lovely Little Owl who posed nicely to be digiscoped about 20 yards away - but it was up a height.
Then I spent an hour at Low Barns to see if the Kingfisher showed - which it did for about 2 minutes it dived into the water 4 times unsuccessfully, I think the weed is getting too thick for it now.
