Peter Donnelly looks to have stolen a march on John Bowler in the two horse race for the Coastal Scotland league. It would take a very special December at Balephuil to take the title now.
Tighter is the race for third, which will come down to the last month. Gary Bell at Sumburgh holds the position currently but Steve Minton and Mike Pennington are hot on his heels.
Highlights for the month were the third Ring-Necked Duck of the year at Balephuil, a Great Grey Shrike on North Ronaldsay and a Black Guillemot for Stuart Taylor at Balivanich.
Mark Lewis leads the way on BirdTrack records with Sean Morris also recording impressive submissions for the year whilst in the Green scores, Mark Lewis will have a bit of work to do in December to catch up the 10 point deficit on Steve Minton at Scatness.
Congratulations to the 5 competitors who have now exceed last years marker. Andrew Whitehouse leads the way with John Bowler and Stephen Welch just behind with all to play for in December.
