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

Little Owl - Weardale Quarry

I went up to a site in Weardale that held a Little Owl all year last year, just to see if it had survived the winter or moved on.
Happily after 30 minutes of searching I found it peeking over the edge of a ledge at me, I moved locations to get a better view, but it meant I was further away.
Glad to see it is still there - it has been quite snowy and cold where he lives. These were taken from 80 yards away and the bottom photo was on full 60x zoom on the scope - not cropped.
