Total Number of Species Recorded in 2011

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).

I was in a similar area this morning, going through Eversholt Lake around 9:15 to 10am

My count was 13 male and 9 female GOOSANDER, 20+ Siskin, 2 Marsh Tits, Treecreeper, Nuthatch but no Crossbill there.

I did get COMMON CROSSBILL later in the morning with a minimum of 17 feeding on buds at Charle Wood near the first green you come to on the right as you go up from the parking spot. Also dropped into Stockgrove briefly where two male Mandarin were present on the island. Yet to find a Brambling this year though

Surprise of the day was this afternoon however when my Yaris once more got through its MOT unscathed just before it went through the 137000 mile mark.
