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).

Jenny and I had a quick wander around the back of the Bushmead estate early this afternoon (Thursday). Three Bullfinches by the car park at TL086259, 20 WAXWINGS near the end of the Riddy path at TL094243, 4 Siskins by the play area at TL092246.

Also lots of Fieldfares mixed with some Redwings in the hedges between the path at the back of the houses and the field.

The Waxwings should be there tomorrow as there seems to be plenty of food for them.
