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).

BLACK TERN at Priory and more WHINCHATS

I was helping Steph Morren with an RSPB event at Priory Country Park today and she found at least one COMMON SWIFT (there was one around all day but no way of telling whether it was one or more birds) and we also found a BLACK TERN. In all we had 19 species from a spot immediately in front of the Visitor Centre, which we thought was quite good in view of the time of year and the weather. We even had a House Sparrow in the vegetation at the edge of the lake (Jean Abbott).

Steve Blain meanwhile located 2 WHINCHATS on Biggleswade Common.
