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).

Broom this evening

Juvenile RUFF on Gypsy Lane East and BLACK-TAILED GODWIT flying around Peacocks lake at dusk - and an amazing Swallow roost around the entrance track pool. I reckon around 3000 birds were involved. Massively impressive, and right by the footpath too - just magic! Well worth a visit tomorrow night if anyone is passing (Steve Blain)
