With the wind storm force 1 gusting severe gale 2, digi-scoping was difficult. I'm new to digi-scoping so learning that even the slightest breeze makes it tough to get a sharp image as the telescope wobbles in the breeze. So this was the best from the morning, Flat Holme, about 6 miles out to sea from Sand Bay.
Later in the afternoon whilst having a cup of tea, I could see many birds on the garden feeders. So set the scope up in the conservatory and waited. By now the birds had flown, which is typical, so I amused myself with getting to grips with what the digiscope kit could do on my garden flowers. Okay I agree, I could have gone into the garden and taken a photo, but this Celendine, photographed from about 30 feet away on a x60 eyepiece and x 14 camera setting appeals to me. I know what you're thinking..... !!
Then finally, the Goldfinches came back so took about 50 shots of these glorious birds. Because they move about quite a bit many were a bit blurred, but this one captures the little fella.
Original photo uncropped (above) and cropped and re-sized below. Lovely.Have a good Easter, and for those of you in Northumberland, hope the Crane stays at QE2 park. Amazing birds.
