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).

No sign of the Little Stint at Broom GP this morning, but Ruff and Wheatear there, per Martin Stevens.

Some bits from the weekend:

Rookery South: Little Stint present on both Saturday and Sunday per Roy Nye

Quest ClP: Pink-footed Goose present on Sunday, per Keith Owen

Broom GP:Greylag – the flock was a min of 1368 on Sunday, along with single Barnacle, Egyptian, c.30 Canadas, and two Canada x Greylag hybrids. Recent WeBS counts have put this site in the top twenty in the country, with a mean of 815 during 2009/2010 (and a previous max of 1232). The 1% threshold for sites of national importance is a mean count of 1400, so a little way to go yet.
