The comparative table is again Owens - at least his success this year handicaps him going forward (hopefully 140% scores are confined to 2013!). Alan L's Carrick Mountain patch leaps into second with a 120% score. Dave Suddaby climbs from 6th to 4th and becomes the latest member of the 100 club.

Ireland Minileague - November
Dave Suddaby surges into second place with a self found 'Queen' Eider at Blacksod, County Mayo. Despite Dave's late run Owen Foley added another 7 species and 29 points to cement first place in the inaugural Ireland Minileague. December needs to hold 8 self found rares for Dave to catch Owen. Maybe not. October highlighted the excellence of Owen's patch with self found Fea's Petrel and Green-winged Teal in addition to American Golden Plover and White-rumped Sandpiper found by others. Elsewhere Niall Keogh managed to find a Glaucous Gull for a couple of well deserved points at Kilcoole but he falls to third place. Alan Lauder climbs one place to 9th at Wicklow Head and whilst his other patch, Carrick Mountain, fails to climb the table a Little Egret was a super find there.
