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

KITTIWAKE at Calvert BBOWT this evening

Although no details are forthcoming as usual, Calvert BBOWT this evening apparently has an adult KITTIWAKE roosting and an immature ICELAND GULL.

KITTIWAKE is a mega-rare bird in Bucks and a highly sought after local bird

Elsewhere, the 2 male BEARDED TITS are still at Dorney Wetlands
