Records on the move while we sleep

Having recently loaded pretty much all of our archive of bird records into BirdTrack (all one million of them!), we had more good news this morning. Between the BTO IS Team and our own Dave Dunford, we've now managed to set up a nightly process whereby all of the day's records are automatically grabbed and loaded into BirdTrack, making them available the following day.

This is a great achievement and one that deserves a big 'thank you' to all involved. The only annoyance is that we still haven't quite made the million mark, and as of today, we have a grand total of 998,627 records in our BirdTrack account.
