- 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

The weather wasn't brilliant so I decided to go up to Teesdale and do some family history stuff, andtake some photos of where my ancestors lived. On the way up to Baldersdale, I stopped off at Barnard Castle to see if there were any Pied Flycatchers around, but after a search I found only a Goosander on the river which spotted me first and flew.

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.
After lunch we headed up to the high ground Weardale, hoping to see Ring Ouzels, however the weather had taken a major turn for the worse. It was only 1 degree with snow showers blowing sideways. I saw a couple of Ouzels flying but as Pete headed up the gill it was thudering and snowy - he did not find any more Ouzels.
We also saw a stunning pair of Golden Plovers close to the road.

I couldn't decide where to go this morning, and ended up going to Tilery Wood to try and find the Crossbills.
