Guy, is the one degree square based on "whole degree" coordinates, or is it
half a degree either side of the chosen location? I.e could your location turn
out to be close to the edge of the square?
How do I access birding site lists from the map? I worked out I can display
their locations by tapping the binoculars symbol. What then?
