This records sightings and generates a life list but I want all sorts of lists, of course. I want to import a massive Wildlife Recorder database too. However, MBO also uploads to something mysterious called Birdstack.
A-ha! Paydirt maybe. This is online. This imports from CSV files. This will generate lists from searches based on dates, locations and much more. And the much more includes the IOC taxonomy and neat features like publishing via feeds and widgets.
It sounds too good to be true. So I’m going to give it a whirl with my future sightings and gradually import the related lists to see how it works. And I’ll report back. The first step it to back up all my WR data to CSV as a cut-off snapshot. You will see that I have to tinker with that file.
