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

More Red Backed Shrike

More Red Backed Shrike
Some better and closer pictures of a Red Backed Shrike which performed well, if distant at times
It was eating mainly Bees and Wasps however it was also seen to take a Dragonfly and this unlucky Grasshopper.


  1. Thanks Liverbirder. I wasn't happy with the first lot so I went back for more and waited hours for it to come closer.
