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).

Saturday Morning LOCAL MEGA: PIED FLYCATCHER at Blows Downs

Bob Chalkley discovered a fabulous adult male PIED FLYCATCHER in the paddocks at Blows Downs 10.50 Saturday morning - the first at the site for 22 years. It remained in the central hedgerow for the rest of the day eventually being admired by just under 60 observers.

Nearby, an extremely early male GREENLAND WHEATEAR was in the paddocks (LGRE et al), with three more NORTHERN WHEATEARS on the Top Fields (Rob Dazley)
