- 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 spent a few hours at the weekend waiting for Kingfishers to show at Low Barns, which they did, but mainly on the far side of the lake (inaccessible), however one of the young ones decided to sit on the perching poles provided by the centre, then move onto the small island where it caught a couple of fish.
I got a great video of it but I am unable to upload it on this site for some reason, I took a couple of photos with the canon camera, as the battery in my nikon on the scope failed (I had just charged it up).
While I was waiting for the kingfisher the Greater Spotted Woodpeckers provided great opportunities for photos. So all in all it was a good morning.

I will attempt to put the kingfisher video onto youtube. Success!

I have tried for four or five years to see the fledged youngsters at fairly close range at this site, I check to see if the buzzards are in the territory in March/April, then I do not go back until at least mid June to avoid any disturbance, this year it has paid off. The young will now very quickly start to broaden their territory.
