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)

Blows Downs today

The female COMMON REDSTART was joined by a second (found by Lol Carman) -when I came back past the Paddocks at 14:00 there were two unhappy people looking but not finding.

Anyway ..

Elsewhere on the site there were five Wheatear on the ploughed field next to the Plateau and a further three on the Tesco slope Also on the Tesco slope four male and three female RING OUZELS which with the tailless bird in the Paddocks area (today is its 6th day) means at least eight on site

A very enjoyable three hours
