Hi Peter,

What I'm wanting is to get a much greater detail out of my sightings than what 
Eremaea provides.

If we look at the statistics page I get numbers for Sites, Lists, Observations 
and Species. But I want to also see a breakdown of each species and how often 
I've seen them. Perhaps if the listing for sites was hyperlinked to a table 
that then lists the sites, and each site would be a hyperlink that gave you a 
breakdown of each species at the site.

To give you an idea of what I'm trying to do, I've attached a copy of my 
exported year list from Eremaea, which I’ve imported it into Excel and I've 
then created a series of pivot tables from that data.(if anyone else wants a 
copy of this just email me and I'll be only too happy to supply you with one).

*       The first list shows that I have 26 entries (observations) in Eremaea 
for Ash Island this year. But it doesn't tell me if I've seen 1 bird 26 times 
or 26 different birds or something in between.
*       The second list gives me that breakdown of how many species I've seen 
and how many times I've recorded that into Eremaea. As you can see, I've seen 
24 species only once at Ash Island and 2 species twice, which gives me the 26 
entries (observations) listed in the above point.
*       The third list gives me a breakdown of how often I've seen a species, 
but it doesn't say where I've seen them. Eg; I’ve seen Aust Darter once, Aust 
Gannett on 7 different occasions, Aust Pipit on 3 different occasions etc
*       The fourth list gives me that missing breakdown of where I've seen each 
species. Eg: I've seen an Aust Darter once at Scheyville, Aust Gannets 7 times 
at Long Reef and Aust Pipits I've seen 3 times; once at Ash Island, Hexham, 
once at Ash Island, Wagtail Way and once at Long Reef Golf Course.

I also want to be able to look at all my sites and work out what percentage of 
a particular species is seen and where. Eg: Silver Gulls: Sightings, 90% at 
long Reef, 7% at Narrabeen, 3% at Stockton etc.

There are some other stats I want to look at correlating too, like best months 
for a particular species, entries for different age groups and sexes etc.

I know that I can get most, if not all of that information that I want from 
Eremaea, but the limitation I find with the application is that I have to go 
searching for it in different spots and I can’t have multiple windows open at 
the same time, making it difficult to track and compare different stats. I want 
to be able to have all that information right where I need it.

Just for interest, what sorts of things can't Eremaea do for you, Mark?
