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

In North Bucks today, Paul Saynor watched the juvenile GREAT NORTHERN DIVER at Caldecotte Lakes fly from North Lake over road bridge to South Lake with a fish in its beak at about 11-30am and later saw 3 Little Egrest at reserve end of South Lake.

The GREAT WHITE EGRET was again at Linford whilst at Gallows Bridge Farm Upper Ray Meadows Reserve, an adult male HEN HARRIER joined the adult female and juvenile wintering there.
