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).

CROSSBILLS on the move

16 Crossbills flew over the Quarry car park at The Lodge early this morning, and Dave Odell has 11 over his Wootton garden this afternoon.

An eclipse drake Garganey was at Blunham lake at lunchtime, along with two Wigeon, 14 Pochard, and a new brood of Tufties.

This evening at Broom GP at least 16 Ringed Plovers on-site including 14 together in the field to the west of Peacocks Lake (with two Dunlin still). Otherwise fairly quiet.
