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

Check out my latest Year book for 2016
Birds of North East England 2016


Photo gear is all packed away ready for a trip to Costa Rica, where I hope to see plenty of species - hopefully will top 300 birds in the 3 weeks that I am there.
Trying to come up with a target list is difficult as I want to see everything - I wish.

However three target birds I have short listed are - these are not my photos -  I hope mine will be as good.

1. Long Tailed Silky Flycatcher - a beautiful bird, I think we should see.
 Photographer Steven Easley

2. Any of the Potoos - a weird bird that again there is a good chance of seeing. Its so funny
 Unknown photographer

3 Ornate Hawk Eagle - a rare bird - we could see

 Photographer Octavio Campus Salles
