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

Kingfishers at last - Far Pasture.

After spending a few weeks recovering from my op and resting my leg up, I had a trip up to Far Pasture where a family of Kingfishers had been reported. I have a competition on with a friend, to see who can get the best Kingfisher photos this year, so I had to take this opportunity to see if I could finally get some photos.
There were at least 3 kingfishers around, at one point they were all on the same branch at the far end of the lake at one point 2 birds were displaying - too far to photo though.  However they did come close individually.
I digiscoped the birds and took some with the Canon SX50 to compare  - digiscope wins again.
Its great to see a successful family of kingfishers, as I think local to where I live the first brood nests got flooded out after flash floods on the hills.
