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

Back again - Great Grey Shrike

Had a quiet month or so, it always seems to be poor weather when I get a day free lately.
I gave the Great Grey Shrike at Stanhope a second chance to show itself after not seeing it last weekend.
It was showing really well today but the weather was awful with rain and low light levels.  I managed to digiscope some quite nice photos despite the conditions.
A Hawfinch had also been seen at the same location just before I got there and I missed out on it.
I missed out on getting photos of the White Tailed Eagle last week by just a couple of minutes - although I did see it at a distance briefly.
Just the way it goes sometimes.
