- 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

First call was to see if there were any more Long Eared Owls around, if there was I couldn't find them, but the usual Owl was sat on his normal branch, I showed a young guy where it was to save him accidentally disturbing it. He was real happy with seeing it.
Then I moved onto RSPB Saltholme reserve and called in at the Phil Stead hide, to practice with my new Nikon P900.

What a bonus it was.

I had a tour round and managed to find these Black Grouse.
There was no sign of any lekking occuring, perhaps I was too late despite being there just after sunrise. They will lek in the dark.
Apart from a few flocks of fieldfare 2 fly over Crossbills and a couple of Kestrels I saw little else. But I was concentrating on the Black Grouse and managed to get fairly close to them by letting them come to me as they fed.
