Andy Johnson at Sandy Point reckons he's heading for his worst patch year ever yet six new species added in October sees him within reach of first place, currently held by Adam Faiers at Sandwich Bay. Just two species and seven points separate them. A productive November could see some shake up there either way.
After Septembers Pallas's Grasshopper Warbler, Amy Robjohns connected with another fantastic eastern passerine at Titchfield Haven in October, this time a Siberian Stonechat. What a great Autumn at that site! Amy stays in third place whilst Mark Lawlor on Guernsey and Andy Rhodes at Calshot both move up into the top five, taking fourth and fifth place respectively.
Adam Faiers continues to top the comparative league table with a mighty 141.51%! An extra three species (including Ring Ouzel) sees Mark Lawlor within striking distance of breaking even on last year.
