SPECIES RECORDED IN BRITAIN AND IRELAND IN 2014

With half the year now gone, the total number of species recorded in Britain and Ireland stands at an impressive 394

TOTAL NUMBER OF SPECIES RECORDED IN BRITAIN AND IRELAND COMBINED IN 2011

2011 proved to be a RECORD YEAR with no less than 452 species recorded in Britain and Ireland. It happened to coincide with a year that I took out from Year Listing and frustratingly I saw just 69% of this year's bumper total

New Years Day in LOTHIAN

Barns Ness: The WATER PIPIT was showing well in amongst a large mixed flock of Rock and Meadow pipits. Also good numbers of Dunlin, Sanderling, Knot, Turnstone and a single Grey Plover to name but a few.

Whitesands Bay: wintering BAIRD'S SANDPIPER showing very well after it seperated from the large wader flock mostly made up of Dunlin and Sanderling. There were a lot of people out walking on the beach today and this made tracking the bird down a lot harder as the waders flushed every time someone went near them. I eventualy got the place to myself and tracked the bird down.

Aberlady Bay: 4 Short-eared Owls hunting in the dunes out towards the point this afternoon. Fieldfares were absolutely everywhere. Still no sign of the Yellowlegs after a good search (Dennis Morrison)
