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

Merlin from Scotland

Spent a little time watching this family of Merlin in a location in Scotland.  The young had fledged perhaps a week earlier and were zipping about the valley like adults.  However they did come to rest on various rocks from time to time, but were fairly distant
The weather was foul with wind, rain and low light, so the photos are just record shots really. But they were great to see.
Also there were a number of Hen Harriers about with males food passing, young and female birds in the air.
An excellent site
