Very conceivably not the right area to be asking, but since it pertains to what I saw here on this site...

The review menu notification (see below) shows there are 12 items for review.

Non-empty review queue!

When I click on the link to the review queue, I arrive to find there is nothing for (me to) review (see below). Why is this?

The review menu notification number is an estimate, based on cached details; it is not a real-time, up-to-date count.

See Shog9's answer at https://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/266000/review-page-does-not-work-as-before, or another one at Does the review queue page show only reviews requiring your action? Does it differ, and when does it? (thanks to snailboat for digging this one up!)

    Also, it's based on the tasks available to everyone, not to any individual. The old suggested edit indicator showed an action you could take. This one doesn't indicate any such thing; it'll be stuck above 10 for everyone the entire time the self-eval is going, since it's impossible to clear that queue.
