Search for records for a specific day number

Tom,

I know that it is possible to group records by 'day number', but is there a way to search for records for a specific day number? The obvious example is where day number = 1, ie records made on 1st January (in any year)? There are quite a lot of records on the DDb that use 1st January as the date, but which obviously should have the date as the whole year (or even a date range). It would be useful to be able to search for such records.

Thanks,

Andy.

Hi Andy,

Yes, the filter is 'more options' => 'attributes' => 'day or month'

If you find large sets where this is a problem then please let me know as it may be preferable for me to modify date-precision in the database rather than have a lot of records bulk-edited.

(a catch may be that the New Year Plant Hunt data will legitimately have 1st of Jan dates)
