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

OSPREY through Linford yesterday afternoon

At Linford early morning, no sign or sound of any Groppers, and just 1 Cuckoo & 1 Fieldfare of interest.

Some belated news from the hide notebook there though - 2 Dunlin on Apr 19th, and 1 OSPREY flew north at 2pm on Apr 20th, when Yellow Wag and Common Sand were also present. (Rob Hill)
