In 2011, a total of 452 species was recorded in Britain and Ireland of which I recorded just 69% (312); Bedfordshire recorded 204 species (of which I saw 94% at 191), Hertfordshire 192 (of which I saw 88.5% at 170) and Buckinghamshire 192 (of which I recorded just 86% at 165)

In 2012, I came fourth (on 168), following Steve Blain (177), Jim Gurney (174) and Martin Plamer (171).

COMMON CROSSBILLS at The Lodge - first of the year

One or more COMMON CROSSBILLS 'glipping' in the pines on the southern perimeter of the staff carpark at The Lodge at 12:10 today; two WAXWINGS north over Sandy Heath towards the tree nursery at 08:00 this morning; a Peregrine over Sandy Ridge just after dawn on Tuesday and a Woodcock put up near the Sandy Ridge trail soon after.

Our Lodge list now stands at 66, compared to the BTO's impressive Nunnery list of 84. We'll struggle to grip back their Goshawk and Bittern, but they might just struggle with exilipes Arctic Redpoll. You can read all about it here:
