Hi my name is Test Account and I think I heard a Magpie in this audio clip, so I've suggested it on this survey as an additional species.

Thanks Test Account. Surveys now only create child sightings ONCE a species has been confirmed. I.e. there are no child sightings of a survey that are in a "suggested sighting" state.

Guys, you can now suggest species onto a survey that you might hear in the media clip. Similarly, appropriate moderators and/or administrators can also CONFIRM any of the suggestions. No fancy Undo functionality yet, but this is a bit more progress on the Survey front.

I can hear the Starling but the Silvereye sounds more like a Sparrow to me. :)

Am happy to confirm the starling, but the Silvereye sounds like a Red-rumped Parrot to me.
