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

Bletchley WAXWINGS

There are currently (at 1400 hours) 72 WAXWINGS in the tall trees along Bletcham Way, just west of Bond Avenue. They are best viewed from Holdom Avenue as you can walk between the industrial units to get a closer look. They do seem very mobile so I am presuming they must be the ones being seen in Oldbrook and they're commuting between sites (Dave James).
