A good idea, but this appears to assume that the posts are in the
"Uncategorized" category. That doesn't appear to be the case.
The URL does pick up the default category. However, the posts I need to
fix do not appear to be in any category at all, either the default
category or the "Uncategorized" category. That is,
1. When editing the post, no category is checked.
2. The posts I need to fix do not show up in the list of posts under the
category title. That is, when paging through
http://www.elharo.com/blog/category/birding/ you never see these posts.
That's why I suspect some database level surgery is required.
