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

Low Barns 24th January

I  had a look on the moors today for Black Grouse but the snow was too deep to get to the places that I normally find them, although I could see some Black Grouse spread across the moors but miles away.
So I beat a retreat down to Low Barns and concentrated on the woodland birds - the lakes were all frozen up.


Gangs of Long tailed tits were showing well with up to 10 birds or so feeding at once.  Then a Great Spotted Woodpecker came in - all of the smaller birds are wary of the woodpecker. 
A nice Jay came down to feed a couple of times and came real close. Other birds included all the usual tits including Marsh Tit, Nuthatch, Treecreeper, fly through Sparrowhawk, magpie, robin, dunnock and reed bunting.
