Blog style date archive

Is it possible to create a blog style date archive navigation without using the blog app?

My website has a section that requires bird sightings to be added and filtered by year and month.

It should be, yes. What are you trying to achieve when you say "blog style"?

This is the page I'm trying to re-create http://www.spurnbirdobservatory.co.uk/sightings/

When a sighting is added during a new year/month, the site automatically creates a link in the navigation (similar to the perch blog app), I'd like to replicate how this works in Perch.

Yes, you can do that by listing out the posts and using perch:if different="" to check for the month changing.
