which listing software?

Hello,

What are your opinions on the best (preferably free) listing software, I use RBA at the moment but would be good to have a permanent one that doesn't expire when the subscription runs out. also one that I can keep lots of lists on (year, british, world, county, patch)

cheers :)

Espen

Check out www.wings4d.com/

It was an annual subscription but has just been made free. It will do what you want.

Cheers
Steve

Best listing software is using an online database. EBird is my favorite (see link in my signature). It's well-funded by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, U.S. National Science Foundation, and others, so it will be around for a while, and it's totally free and non-commercial. It will do everything you describe. Taxonomy updates are automatic, so no need to mess with updates.
