Just reread your post and the Audiomoth looks really interesting - maybe worth a thread detailing its use and results - is anyone else on BF using one I wonder?

I ordered one via the ongoing group get, so will have to wait for a little while to get my hand on it and test it. I don't think it will be able to compete with the more serious set ups but size, cost and very low power consumption look very attractive to start off with. Brief review below

Thanks GMS, do you know if yours has the possibility to plug in an external mic?

I don’t think so but don’t know for sure.

Decision made and recorder ordered. Went for the Zoom h4n in the end so hopefully will get my head round it (and Audacity) and end up with some half decent recordings in time.

Great stuff - hope you have a lot of fun with it. If nothing else, recording birds has made me much better at listening to them. I use the Zoom, and audacity, so happy to answer any questions.
