My interest in birding was ignited at the age of 12 by my school teacher – thank you Mr Enis. Most of my teenage birding was on a push bike around my hometown of Doncaster. My first photographic effort was with breeding Little Bitterns at Potterick Carr; a little disappointing as not one picture came out. Fast forward to the mid 90’s I bought my first camcorder and was amazed at the magnification gained by attaching it to a scope. Video scoping took over for a while until I was ready for a new challenge with a Sony P200 and my digiscoping began – always using Swarovski gear as they have always had digiscoping in mind when designing their scopes. I’m a fan of the Panasonic cameras currently using a GH3. My aim is to encourage others in what you can achieve by attaching your camera (compact, micro for thirds or DSLR). I’m happy to answer questions and share anything I know. A very big thank you to Martin for asking me to be a member of the Birding Frontiers team.
