- 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

Glossy Ibis at Billingham
However it was now only about 20 yards away and it was vital that the car was used as a hide, because I was still digiscoping it I opened the car door with the window open and set the tripod up on the road and digiscoped through the open window - this meant the door was still giving me cover. Others were not so careful, despite being told a guy walked along the fence to get minimum distance between himself and the bird and used a fence
What a nice bird though. There have been a few about in the North East this winter and this one was worthwhile going to see.
