Starting into sound recording - some tips (1 Viewer)

You have probably some treads about this, but since there are always new equipments coming out, I prefer to ask.
Some days ago I got a really good night of migration where I heard about 20 redwings and a couple song thrushes during a 30 minutes period and after some months thinking about bauying a recorder or not I think I have made my mind.

I want to buy a recorder to both NFCs and to carry with me to record what I hear (mostly flyovers) while I do birdwatching... (heard an Anthus hodgsoni some weeks ago which I couldn't record and is a country rarity).
For now from what I read, I'm thinking on buying a zoom H1n. What do you think of this recorder? Do you recommend any other within this value (around 100€)?

Second question. Will I get significantly better results with a cheap microphone? If so, which one do you recommend to connect to zoom h1n or with the recorder you suggest?

Thank you in advance
