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).

GREY PLOVER over Potton

GREY PLOVER calling (three times at five second intervals, heading roughly north
east towards Gamlingay) over the disused pit on Common Road, Potton and
Everton Sand Quarry this morning at about 07:00. Grid reference
approximately TL 225 503. Could not be relocated at the farm reservoir just
to the north.

Rather pleased with that, if somewhat serendipitous!
