- 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

Yellow Rumped Warbler - High Shincliffe
I travelled up the road to High Shincliffe near Durham this morning to view the Mega rare Yellow Rumped Warbler. There was a large crowd of twitchers maybe about 80 people.
The bird itself was fairly mobile but also offering good views at times, although the were often plenty of branches in the way too.
I saw it and got some decent shots.
(As for been a twitcher - I still don't know how many birds I have seen and I don't keep lists, so there is hope yet).
