Alastair Forsyth managed the two best finds of April but he managed a miserly six points for them as his second Blue-winged Teal of the year earned him precisely nothing. Despite this he holds onto first place thanks to a Great Grey Shrike. Simon Pinder is in second with a five point advantage over Rory Whytock at Lake of Menteith. Mark Hammonds Long-tailed Duck on the River Dee is newsworthy this month as good patch fare such as Garganey, Osprey and Tree Pipit found there way into various monthly highlights boxes. The Stirling part of our favourite schizophrenic patcher is bottom of the table with the Dunblane incarnation leading the Chris Pendlebury minileague.
The comparative podium remains static in places but Alastair Forsyths finds have given him an excellent 94.5%. Will he be first to 100% in Inland Scotland? Second remains Chris P's Dunblane patch with 80% whilst Andy Cage is in third place.
