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).

Wardown Park Whoopers and Egyptian Geese

On a quick outing for WEBS this morning, only one of the two Egyptian Geese (first noted on Boxing Day) still remaining and four Whooper Swans today. A park first for me up by the museum was four Siskins in the trees. Nearby in my garden, male Blackcap and male and female Brambling still present, all having been around since a week before Christmas (Andy Grimsey)
