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).

Well done Richard and Nick and thanks for the call Jim. Excellent to see so many Beds birders connecting with the superb GREAT WHITE EGRET at Radwell. Having flown over the railway soon after 11.00, it was distantly visible on the small pit west of the railway from the road bridge until 11.30 at least...... Bob, Lol, Stu Warren and DHB still on site when I left..

Not as sharp as I'd have liked as most heavily cropped but here's a selection of shots for your amusement (Martin J Palmer).
