This blog shows my photos taken through digiscoping and are mainly of birds in the North East of England, which has been my main interest for the last few years. VIEW MY LATEST PHOTOBOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE
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
I am limited to how much I can get out at the moment but at least I am getting out once a week. This week I utilised RSPB Saltholme mobility scooter - good way of getting around lol, nearly ran into someones tripod and camera too - am used to reversing cameras hehe.
The waxwings were again showing nicely here at Saltholme and there were loads of people getting photographs of them, they were also coming down to puddles to get a drink (waxwings not people).
Whilst watching them somebody pointed out a Bittern in the distance flying - I caught a quick view before it disappeared behind the crowd of people - no photo of it.
