September proved largely disappointing for contenders in the Inland North, with few points added resulting in a table broadly similar to last month. Wayne Gillett and Darren Starkey make up the top 3 with Darren having some work to do in the last 3 months of the year to make top spot.
Highlights for the month were the impressive 3 Pectoral Sandpipers found together by Paul Massey at Grindon Lough, a Hawfinch at Alkborough, Caspian Gull at Goole Fields and Water Pipit at Pugneys.
Andy Bunting and Pete Antrobus are battling it out for the most Birdtrack records submitted and both should top 10,000 by the end of the year. Andy Bunting currently leads the way. The Green league is headed up by James Common at Stobswood who will take some stopping
2 of the 7 contenders in the comparative league have topped 100% with James Common at Stobswood way out in front with a very healthy 116%. Peter Williams at Laycock stays on the 100% mark with both Phil Woollen and Mark Reeder closing in on last years score. It will take a miracle (or a self-found Willet) to knock James off top spot with just 3 months left to go.
