    Is it possible to display the lifers seen in a certain date range?  (Even just counting the first sightings in that period would be helpful for my current question.) It would also be good to be able to do that for a particular Location. I see in Reporting how you can have the first sightings highlighted, but is it possible to filter so only the lifers are shown? I could count the highlighted species, but that would be laborious.

    Thanks.

    I have searched the forum and see many discussions of reporting on lifers, but didn't see any on this question.

    Hi Steve,

    The Sightings Report is where you can specify filters such as date range, location, etc. 

    You cannot limit it to only Lifers seen on the report, but the report does give you the total count of Lifers. Be sure to check the Highlight World Lifers checkbox, and optionally Location and Annual checkboxes to get the counts reported and individual sightings highlighted.

    Jeff

    Ah, thanks. I had run the report properly, but hadn't even noticed that count on the header! Sorry.

    (The count is good enough for me, part of checking the differences between what I had in BirdBase and what got imported into Birder's Diary.)
