Listening to nocturnal bird migration

Ilse Schrama
Description:

Most bird migration is nocturnal, invisible unless migrants are illuminated from below, or pass the face of the moon. However, by putting out sound recording gear, it is possible to detect those night migrants that call. Surprises are frequent.

‘Nocmig’ enthusiasts often detect migrants in seemingly unlikely places. Coots and moorhens far from water, scoters taking shortcuts across landmasses, Ortolans occuring in greater numbers than daytime observations suggest. Magnus Robb explains what’s possible and how he does it.
