opmerkingen sound-recorded. The 12th Eurasian Scops Owl has the honour of being one of the first accepted nocturnal migration (‘noc-mig’) rarities. Since continuous recording of bird calls during the night has gained popularity, it can be expected that more vagrants will occasionally be captured on tape. Noc-mig is still in its infancy and there is still a lot to be learnt. Future submissions of (presumed) rarities could be tough nuts to crack, with potential fraud (known to have happened in other countries) adding another layer to an already difficult matter. Amateur birders play a key role in adding new knowledge by sharing their recordings. It is not a practice for the faint-hearted though. Imagine the shock when you discover a bird like this Eurasian Scops Owl on your recordings and then realize it was calling right above your head while you were asleep...
