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).

Just had a reliable report of an exilipes ARCTIC REDPOLL amongst a flock of 60 redpolls in the north-east corner of Coronation ClP (11:30). The flock is mobile but regularly in the birches in this corner. The area is probably best accessed off Kiln Road, off the B530 (per Steve Blain)

Lol Carman and Bob Chalkley arrived mid afternoon and relocated the flock and enjoyed excellent views of the bird. MJP and I will search for it tomorrow and provide detailed instructions
