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

Yorkshire dales bird treat

Pete took me to his secret cuckoo spot this morning, he said "just stand and a cuckoo will land in a bush". Yeah right, the bush was about 12 yards away!!!!

We heard cuckoos in the hour or so before one showed up. I was absolutely amazed to see a cuckoo land initially about 40 yards away, then it moved into the bush that Pete said it would.  I was gobsmacked.

I got loads of photos of it . Cheers Pete mate
Then it was up to see some Peregrines.


The Location is well known and the young are almost ready to fly.  They are fantastic to see no matter how many times I come up to see them.

The day was topped off with a fantastic Redstart.
