Compared to most recent years, when for example I recorded 165 species in the county in 2011, 187 in 2012 and 173 in 2013, this has been a particularly poor one with just 157 species recorded by mid December - one of my worst years on record


It's all over - 2012 has come to an end. I managed a total of 187 out of the 198 species recorded all told in Buckinghamshire - 94% of the total - probably my highest-ever annual tally.

The current record is 191 species achieved in 2006 and held jointly by both Rob Hill and Simon Nichols

Two COMMON GREENSHANK at Dorney this morning

After a text at 15:43 from Adam Bassett with news of 2 COMMON GREENSHANK I was unable to visit until 19:00. By this time Dave Cleal had already made a visit and found the Greenshank had already departed. The remaining waders left on the Seasonal Pool (1250m) were a Common Redshank and the usual 2 Common Sandpiper (Kevin Duncan)
