Beach Patrol Database Development - Great Progress

Very good progress continues with data transcription in the Birds New Zealand Beach Patrol Data Entry Project. Read the latest progress report here.

Thank you all for your continuing support and, in particular, a big thanks to the enthusiasm and commitment of several members who are making such an sustained effort in this regard.  Your support is very much appreciated. 

A batch of Beach Patrol Cards and Beach Patrol datasheets for the 2009 to 2011 period were scanned and loaded into the database today – this explains the increase in the number of ‘new scans’ waiting to be entered in the Data Entry Table Home Page.
