I had a couple of days away with my mate Pete to show him some Hobbies, the destination is the reliable Hobby area at RSPB Sandy.
A diversion to a site in Lincolnshire however was an added bonus as a Red Footed Falcon had been showing there for a few days.
We called in there first and got some great directions from a couple of people and then we were straight onto it.
Our first views were quite obscured but we knew if we were patient there would be a good chance of better views.
We took loads of photos, and it started in raining. We continued getting wetter and wetter, but I think this also made the bird sit longer for us. What great views and photos of this stunning bird.
We drove through the weather front and arrived at Sandy as the sun was reappearing. We immediately went to find some Hobbies as the forecast for the next day was bad, with weather warnings in the area.

- 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
