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

More Black-tailed Godwits

Three more BLACK-TAILED GODWITS were seen in the county on Sunday flying west over Spade Oak Pit, Little Marlow (Alan Stevens).

Also, just been told about a singing male Wood Warbler reported from near the Buddleia turning circle at The Hale end of Wendover Forest  in June (per Graham Smith). First I had heard of it but apparently 'special invitation only'.due to the possibility of it being on territory.
