Inland East Anglia Minileague - July

One of the few minileagues in July to have a host of responses and there were even some good birds in there with Turtle Doves, Curlew Sandpipers and Long-tailed Ducks 'padding' out some lists much to the joy of those inland patchers who saw them. Jamie Wells only managed a brace of points in July while Ben Lewis managed ten. This has closed the gap significantly - one really good bird would manage to get Ben back in the big time. A 12 point month for Steve Swinney at Linford displaces Ed Keeble from the podium places. Richard Stace and Nick Moran jump a couple of places and Russell Neave has also made significant gains.

Birds of the month go to Steve Swinney with a GW Egret/Fulmar combo. I imagine the latter was more impressive than the former on an inland patch. Honourable mention must go to Ben Moyes who managed a July Ouzel. There cant be many of those about in the Brecks...

Thanks to his monster month Steve Swinney takes over at the top jumping two places and knocking last months numbers one and two down a notch. Ben Lewis has managed to climb three places to seventh as he heads towards the 90% mark. No more 100%'ers this month. Maybe in August?
