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

Duncombe Park - Bird of Prey Centre

We went to see the newly opened Duncombe Park Bird of Prey centre, mainly because I wanted to try out the Canon SX50 on flying shots to practice my flying photography skills.
Although I am not keen on birds of prey being kept in cages (or any bird), it was interesting to see some of the species that they had - perhaps 100 birds of prey.
The displays were a little short - only flying 4 birds at each session however they were coming really close.
The conditions were windy with changing sunlight/cloud conditions
I am pleased with some of the shots but as can be expected there were many rubbish shots.
Below are a couple of experimental shots after messing about with Photoshop.

 Together with a morning in Whitby it was a great day out.
