Tony, how are you determining whether data is being transferred to birdata or 
not? If you're looking at the data on the maps, I don't know how regularly 
they're updated to reflect what's in the database.

I don't know if it's still the case, but I know at one stage they went years 
between updates, but the data was there in the database.
