After seeing Shore Larks being reported at Hartlepool for most of the week, I was really looking forward to Saturday hoping that they would still be around.
I then looked up the hill and saw a couple of birders in the distance, I walked all the way up to where they were and they had not seen the Shore Larks either. But looking back to the North I could see a group of birders/photographers were obviously onto the birds.
The pair of Shore Larks were very busy feeding fast. Then they flew and it was a while before they were relocated.
Then a trip to see if there were any Long Eared Owls showing on Sunday morning. I went there early as snow was in the forecast. So I had to make the most of the nice light.

- 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
