Some of my eBird stats

It's fun to know a little bit of MS Access - enough to get yourself into trouble and seemlingly waste some time.

Here is a little summary of my lifetime eBird stats I whipped up in a couple of hours while the sun strengthened out my office window.

NB the only non-species included is Rock Pigeon (Feral - whatever it's called
Hours - on checklists - 3 minutes assigned for casual aka incidental checklists
Distance - on checklists - obviously doesn't include travel time to / from / between

2014 was a big year for species because of my trip to Mexico.
2016 was a big year for distance because of lots of field trips with others in the area.
2015 was good because I broke 200 only locally.

This year was fantastic with all the curlew and LEWO work.

Hey, it all counts as fun!
