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

Great Northern Diver

 Great Northern Diver
 I managed to sneak a couple of hours in yesterday to see a Great Northern Diver at Hartlepool Marina.
It showed well although it was diving regularly, and was swimming underwater for about 100 yards, making it unpredictable where it would surface, this made it difficult to digiscope however I did manage a few nice shots. 

At one point it was watching the sky and then it made its eerie call, which for me was the first time that I had heard a Great Northern Diver call.

Unfortunately thats definately my last trip until the end of January.
