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

Red Squirrels in Co Durham

Red Squirrels - Co Durham
I spent the morning photographing Red Squirrels and trying out the Sony RX100 in low light conditions on the scope.
It seems to perform well and had the ISO up to 800 and I think that the resolution is starting to go. 

The Squirrels were fantastic and coming so close at times it made
digiscoping redundant, and I had to fall back to the Canon SX40 to get some shots.
There were a few people there taking photos but the squirrels did not seem to mind.
