I can confirm that the mail archive search is not returning recent results. I use Gmail and I don't delete Canberra Birds emails, so I have about 17,500 emails going back to 2009. I searched my own mail for "Golden Whistler" and got 7 hits from 2018. I searched the archive, in reverse chronological order, and got no hits from 2018. The most recent was from December 2017.

The is a post in the archive for April 2018 called Large Owl.  Searching for Large and Owl in rev chrono order didn't produce that post.  Another post in the month had the word weediness.  Again a search didn't reveal that one.

I think Tony is on a winner (or loser, depending on one's perspective).

Hello Tony, I cannot reproduce the problem that you have reported.

The archive is month-base, not based on financial years.

All contents are there back to December 2004:

Best wishes - David

Hi All,


Maybe me but I just noticed if you search the archive - no results are returned FY 2018. Only FY 2017 and prior.


Is anyone else having this issue?
