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).

Dave Odell and his partner Marj visited Whipsnade Wildlife Park on Sunday and enjoyed superb views of the wild pair of COMMON RAVENS visiting the captive bird near the wood near the main entrance and the toilets; Cliff Tack pointed out that the wild birds are regular visitors here. The pair are busy repairing the usual nest in the conifer plantation and were seen on several occasions last week (LGRE, Lol Carman, Bob Chalkley)
