Hi All, I have just spent the last couple of months in southern africa and taken huge numbers of digiscoping photographs.

How Austrian Wallcreepers construct their nests...

Posted Wednesday 24th June 2009 at 20:24 by Dale Forbes

Epic birding in the high alps - 2

Posted Saturday 13th June 2009 at 17:35 by Dale Forbes
it's that time again - spring breeding bird surveys are happening all over the northern hemisphere and the alps are no different. except that they need to happen a little later in the high mountains. last year we risked life and limb to do a survey at the beginning of june, which - in hindsight - was probably a very silly thing to do given the meters of snow still covering the mountains in the bird survey region.

So this year we did the survey a little later and were greeted by surprisingly...

Digiscoping Today week 3 complete

Posted Saturday 30th May 2009 at 08:36 by Dale Forbes
Digiscoping Today week 3 is now complete. Here is a summary:

1. Kevin Bolton of Jersey Digiscoping has been after American wood warbler photos lately and has posted one of that series: a Prairie Warbler Dendroica discolor.

2. Sharon aka BirdChick has posted some cool digiscoped photos and video of a steppe eagle and a family of "barking" marmots (also known as steppe eagle food) live in action.

3. Dale Forbes (yes, that is me) has the first...
