The trip down to RSPB Sandy this year was excellent as usual with the birds showing very well on my first visit on Friday, on the Saturday and Sunday they showed less well, perhaps because there were so many people about.
This year they have raised 3 chicks which can be seen in the nest from the RSPB viewpoint and they will probably fledge this next weekend or so.
Here are a few of the my digiscope shots of the adults.
The first day I was there it seemed to bringing more birds back to the nest, probably because it was so windy, and there were not so many dragonflies about. But they fed mainly on dragonflies on my next two visits.
I will post these shots later.

- 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
