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

Just a couple more Red Kites from Saturday

Had a look through all the Red Kite pics and I think these are slightly better

Its great to see the Kites without wing tags on them, they are so big and obvious - for a reason of course, but its not good to see them on a bird. (For those who do not know the majority of Red Kites in England are from an introduced program in various areas. And they have been quite successful in breeding.  However in some areas the game keepers are still persecuting them - god knows why they are mainly carrion eaters. 
 I will have to remember this location when I am down in the Harrogate area

This photo would have been better if the clouds were not so white or had blue sky, but hey you can't have everything.  

I am so pleased with these shots.
