YEAR 2012 - TOTALS AS WE GO

With half the year now gone, the total number of species recorded in Britain and Ireland stands at an impressive 284

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

Rainham Marshes RSPB - the flagship reserve




A very good start to the year at Rainham Marshes RSPB Reserve with everything hanging on from yesterday inluding the juvenile GREAT SKUA (pictured above), EUROPEAN SERIN (photographed superbly above by James Hunter), Marsh Harrier, Buzzard, Ruff and usual smaller stuff. All in all about 80 or so species seen. Mike Dent had two BITTERNS fly in near dusk which has got all us locals jealous! We will be looking harder in the next few days!
I will open up at 0800 on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd (Howard Vaughan)

  1. Nice finds. I've had no luck with the serin but will have another go once this snow clears
