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

Sunday Sightings

A juvenile MARSH HARRIER over the electricity sub station near East Claydon, heading east towards Winslow, c5.45pm. It flushed a large flock of corvids & c160 LBBG's which were in a stubble field (per Rob Hill).

Meanwhile, the two juveniles remain at the Upper Ray Meadows (Jan & Mic Wells), with 2 WHINCHATS there and another in Stowe Park
