Overall a quiet month in the south west, Joe Stockwell extended his lead with Icterine Warbler, Ortolan and Richard's Pipit whilst both Joe and Sean Foote added Yellow-Browed Warbler to their points scores. A Honey Buzzard was also a welcome addition for Sean at North Portland.
Peter Hazlewood at Oldbury Power Station is way out in front in the Birdtrack records stakes, topping 5000 submissions for the year. Martin Elcoate at Topsham in 5th place in the league is both the highest placed inland and green birder in the south west.
In the all important comparative league, a Wryneck for Roger Musgrove at Wall Common has helped him to top the 100% mark, the only birder to do so in the south west. Hot on his tale are a further 5 birders with over 90%, all of whom will be hoping that October will bring in much needed points to beat their 2013 targets.
