Coastal East Anglia Minileague - September

Opposing fortunes for the top 2 saw Tim Hodge extend the gap and continue his surge over the 300 point mark at a highly commendable 1.61 points per bird. Tim added a number of classic autumn species including Greenish, Barred and Yellow-Browed Warblers whilst James had a frustrating month, despite many hours on patch just a Caspian Gull was added to the year list.

The classic conditions in September helped a number of birders add Barred and Yellow-Browed Warblers as well as Red-Backed Shrike and our own Ryan Irvine added Red-Breasted Flycatcher to his total to move into the top 5. Bird of the month however goes to Kieran Nixon at Kelling / Salthouse, for whom a Western Bonelli's helped him move up the table.

Ryan Irvine heads the two contenders in the non-motorised league whilst Tim Hodge has racked up a fantatsic 11,891 birdtrack records.

Congratulations to the Nick Andrews and Gary White who have topped 100% by the end of September. There is a birds wing between them for top spot, so even a one pointer could make the difference. Meanwhile Craig Fulcher and Ryan Irvine will be hoping for a good points haul in October to push on for the 100% target.
