Oh no! That would have taken some detective work to isolate and I was about to don the old deerstalker and dust off the magnifying glass. But I remembered that WR has an interesting glitch whereby changing sightings don’t always propagate through to the lists.
I regenerated my world tally and… dah-dah! 790 was the result at that time. Phew!
You may have noticed the value that online recording adds to this blog. Previously if I wanted to link to useful information about a site, like where in the world it is, I had to go find a web page, generally on Wikipedia. But now I can link through to my own page complete with exact location as I have identified it on Google Maps. Better still, scrolling down brings all the sightings I have made there.
Check out Aberdeen, although I must say that Birdstack was quite unable to locate the city itself. I had to resort to typing in Stonehaven and navigating from there. The same happened with Southampton and Portsmouth – odd.
Anyway, another plus is that I can link to my sightings of a species if I want to highlight it. They’re all on a map. Well, I can see them. You’ll probably just get everyone’s sightings, like these starlings. Comparing the two is a bit depressing though: it looks like it’s just me and A.N.Other using the system.
