- 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

Low Barns Dipper
Looking at the stones in the river showed bird dropping on most of the larger stones, this is good evidence that a Dipper is using the area to feed.
However I did see the bird move back down the river a little, so I went back to my original position. At first I couldn't see the Dipper, but that was because it was closer than I expected.
It was getting quite dark by the time I came away, but it was great just to see this bird behaving totally naturally being unbothered of me.
