Total Number of Species Recorded in 2011

2010 saw a total of 196 species recorded in Bedfordshire. Of this total, LGRE recorded 183, closely followed by Jim Gurney and Steve Blain on 181, Lol Carman on 180, Martin Palmer on 179 and Bob Chalkley on 177.

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).

There was a SCANDINAVIAN ARCTIC REDPOLL in the birches near the hide at The Lodge yesterday, Wed 5th Jan, it was with only 16 redpolls. It was seen by myself, Mark Eaton, Mark Gurney, and Mark Ward and I managed to get three video clips. I have added some grabs to my blog:

There was no sign of it today at lunchtime when we walked round, but we only saw a handful of redpolls, but it is no doubt still around. This is the culmination of two months of following the redpoll flocks around. There could perhaps be others...Steve Blain
