Nocmig, the key to understand nocturnal migrations

The recording of nocturnal flight calls (NOCMIG or NFC) is a method of studying the migration of birds which consists of recording, using some type of electronic device, the calls emitted by birds while migrating at night. 

The fascinating thing about nocmig is that you don’t need to live anywhere near the coast, for example, to get interesting recordings. 

Passerine birds generally migrate on a fairly wide front, which means that any location can generate interesting data.

Lluís Brotons who is, among other things, the person in charge of the Nocmig station in Solsona, in this festival edition, will talk about the new possibilities offered by this technique, still in progress, to study the migration of birds that fly, while we sleep, over our rooftops.
