Before I get my charts out, I'd like to say a massive thanks to everyone who's contributed a score so far. You can input your score whenever you want - ideally at the very least once a month, but if you want you can input a new score after every trip out. We'll have a much better idea of the state of play at the end of January when hopefully we will have scores in from everyone, but in the meantime, for those who have sent in scores already, here is how you are faring compared to the competition...
So, what do the numbers tell us?
First up, we have the top tens for both the number of species seen and the number of points scored:
But, thats not what it's all about - the top three jostling for position in both of the tables above have excellent patches - we need to see whats happening in the non-comparative and comparative scores league to see whats really going on...
Congratulations to Richard Stace for heading up the non-comparative scores league
So, having notched up 62.38% of his comparative score, Chris Pendlebury, with his Dunblane patch is in the lead at this early stage.
It's early days yet - and we'll have a much better idea at the end of January who the real pacemakers are - but for now, Chris is the man to beat!
