Being in "lockdown" has also prompted me to finally join the numerous "Nocmiggers" (Nocturnal Migration) around the country. Recording calls of migrating birds that pass over the garden during the night. Best bird to date is Moorhen which is a surprisingly regular species recorded during nocmig sessions. The nearest breeding birds to home are probably 1.5Km as the moorhen flies.
Surprised at the quality of the recording considering it is just the recorder with no shotgun microphone as yet.
Lockdown Garden List: 32 species since 23rd March
Plus Nocmig Species: Canada Goose and Common Moorhen
