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).

And more WAXWINGS in East Beds

I had occasion to visit SE Beds today and noted a couple of Waxwing flocks during my journey. The first was a flock of c30 in the SW corner of Arlesey (near the railway line, probably in grid square TL 18 34), just before 8 a.m. Later, at midday, there were 24 Waxwings at Sandy railway station (between Platform 1 and Stratford Road), which then flew off towards the town. This adds to the several Sandy records reported on this site by other observers over the past couple of days (Colin Everett)
