I recently purchased Bird Journal. It's very user friendly uses C&B as an
option for Australian lists. It's main issue is that it is new and its
reports are a bit limited at present but they seem keen on feedback. Its
good as far as locations, and creating location specific lists but doesn't
do reports by site and date range together at present, so not so good for
multiday trip reports. I've goven them some suggestions for flexible
reporting and am waiting to see what the next update includes.
It downloads into a format that can be uploaded to eBird. I have found I can
move lists from it to Eremaea but I have to do quite a fiddle with the CSV
file in excel to make it work.

If you're using Excel and the steps you do to create a chart are always the
same, you could try recording the steps as a macro. It's pretty tricky &
advanced but if you are relatively computer literate it could be worth a
try. Effectively what happens is you create the charts once while having the
macro recording function switched on, and Excel records the steps. Save the
macro (you can give it a name) and next time you just execute the macro and
it runs all the sequential steps automatically on a new data set.
