SA Map

The SA Map module (Southern Africa map) is where you can generate your own source lists using the bird spots tool, QDS tool and map marker tool. There is also a "month-of -year" filter, where you can select all year, one month or multiple months to filter the list you are creating. Once you have created a list, you can save it as a text file or use [Return List] to take the list into the source list module where you can print it out.
