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

Black Grouse - Teesdale

This morning I intended to see the Black Grouse lek in Teesdale, however a late start meant that I missed it - if it happened.
It took an hour to find the Grouse and there were 9 feeding males. 3 of them came within 40 yards which gave a good opportunity to digiscope them.  This is really the first time I have tried the Sony RX100 out on the scope in full sunlight.  I am pleased with the results

I also saw 5 Crossbill and a distant Goshawk displaying
