First ever night migration monitoring station in Italy.
The site (my backyard) is located on a little hill between the Lake of Varese and Lake Maggiore, in northern Italy. It's a little hamlet (called Pacit) of the bigger village Ternate, in the province of Varese - Lombardy.
I started to record nocturnal birds migration during 2016, thanks to a Wildlife Acoustics songmeter SM1 (the first release) lended to me by the Insubric Ornithological Group (G.I.O). About 50 species have been recorded during these 2 years.
