My Birding Database

Over the last few months I have been tinkering with a MySQL/PHP/Apache “application” to keep track of bird sightings and to maintain a primitive life list. Over the weekend I got some of the basic functions going and added nearly 60 sightings. I have records going back 5 years or more still to go through but currently my life list stands at 48. These are only for birds seen in W.A. Not really that impressive but at least I can now keep track of what I see. All I need to do now is find a sensible way to back the databases up (and enter about 100 other sightings!).
