I have just tried the new search feature in the Archives of Birding-Aus and have struck a problem. I am specifically looking for records of Little Kingfisher and am not having any luck. I have tried the following search formats: Little Kingfisher - Returns 1500 documents containing Kingfisher only (there are too many documents containing Little) "Little Kingfisher" - No documents returned (seems to be overwhelmed by Little)
"Sacred Kingfisher" - 542 documents returned
"Forest Kingfisher" - 116 documents
"Azure Kingfisher" - 298 documents.

Is there a way to find just Little Kingfisher records? Can the counter on Little be lifted so a return will be made? If someone has already asked this and a solution has been suggested I apologise. Otherwise a great resource will be limited by the search function.
