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

Water Rail and Mr Fox

I called into RSPB Saltholme again this weekend which has been rather quiet really.
However there was this lovely Water Rail showing outside one of the hides.  It was feeding on bird seed that had been put down for the finches and buntings.

It kept putting an appearance in every 5 minutes or so and stayed for about a minute.
Then it flew to the other side of the hide - no wonder, a fox showed up for her share of the birdseed.
It was not at all scared and just looked at us sat there gawping at this beatiful animal.
This made up for the lack of bird activity around
