Thanks Sandra - excellent recording with so many voices calling together !
The Edit utility hasn't been built yet so we can't correct the location at the moment - we'll fix it later.

I will put up the other recording from the same day once we've had a play with this one. We have a wonderful chorus to listen to during the warmers months. Very blessed. :)

I have added Crinia parinsignifera and Uproleia laevigata
However, can not add any abundance numbers

I am wondering if we will treat all frog sound surveys the same or if we will distinguish between FW site surveys (with the full details as per protocol) and simple accidental surveys, that only state the species (and maybe the abundance)??

I think we should at least add the abundance numbers. Aaron should be able to plug that in. We are testing the system with birds, and have abundance included. See:

I think it would more user friendly to make this type of sighting easier than the normal FW surveys where the people have more expertise etc. For this type of report the person would not have a thermometer, for example, and would be only guessing from memory.

Absolutely agree. More a frog-app type process- simply give the location time date and a recording
it should be therefore clear if it is a general frog sighting or a specific Frogwatch sighting- they might need to have a slightly different look and the general sighting should not be called FROGWATCH sightings- to avoid confusion!!

Yes, agree. A different heading at the top, and just the few essential bits of information.
