VISMIG through a Pennine Moorland Clough.


The VisMig group is for use by those with an active interest in visible

migration of birds. Visible migration is essentially bird movement that

can be counted - e.g. 255 Redwings west in 1 hour. It does not include

stopovers of ducks and geese at reservoirs, or falls of night migrants

(warblers and the like) as their migration is invisible (until we all

have a personal radar!). The expanding activity of nocturnal aud-mig (the identification and recording of night flying migrants on call) in the UK is however of interest.


At the moment, the group is focussed on observers in the north of

England - especially those counting vis migration over inland sites

in the Pennines, but we are interested for comparison, in receiving

information from anywhere in the UK or Ireland...


The aim of the group this autumn (autumn 2012) is to improve

communication by exchange of information and discussion daily on

interesting movements, larger numbers than usual, interesting species

etc. so that all observers (or "spotteurs" as we're called in France)

are aware of what's happening elsewhere as it happens. This information should be

posted on this Yahoo group in the form of a simple paragraph.


....


TESTING - TESTING

The VisMig newsgroup is

experimental. It has been equiped with most of the tools and

information sources (at the click of a mouse) to assist all to

appreciate the background behind the movements and hopefully induce

even more enjoyment from this compulsive birding activity.

WHEN APPLYING TO JOIN PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR LOCATION, NAME AND SPECIFIC INTEREST.
