Overnight migration monitoring 12th October2012

Ran the tape overnight again, on 12th October. Weather was fairly clear skies, with a SW wind, but with a band of rain passing thru.
Results were down on the previous weekend with only a handful of birds:

Redwing: 6
Song Thrush: 1

Present:
Tawny Owl, Robin

The biggest highlight was my new method of analysis:
I now produce a single mp3 (@  128kbps),
then split the file using a free tool called mp3splt.
Also, by loading the next sound file as I analyse each file reduces waiting time.
I'm up to 5 hours of analysis per hour now!
