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

I was surprised to see a CURLEW feeding in the arable field adjacent to the road south from Cardington to Old Warden (the field is on the west side of the road, immediately after the road crosses the old railway line, Grid Ref approx TL 093466). I saw it at c4pm and again at 4:20pm. It appeared to be on its own - there were a fair number of thrushes also in the field, but no other waders visible (Mark)
