Coastal North Minileague - January 2015

Stewart Sexton starts 2015 with a bang after a quieter 2014. 52% comparative sees him a mighty 0.4% over PWC's own James Spencer who has had his best start at Barmston (soon to tail off rapidly no doubt). Ash Baines who went tooth and nail with James in the points league last year holds third place a further 1.3% back. Inevitably some of the bigger points scorers are further back at this stage but plaudits must go to Martin Garner for his rocket start.

Nick Addey has decided to Chris Bradshaw how Scarborough should be patched and holds a 13 point lead over his rival whilst Martin G is in second a narrow three points ahead of Mick Turton (who Tim Jones suggested would have finished in first last year had he entered). All very interesting!

Jonathan Farooqi was one of the first to secure bonus points in 2015 with a Green-winged Teal on his Druridge Bay patch which also benefited Iain Robson. Seamus Eaves managed a Caspian Gull at Fleetwood which is a great record for the north-west. James Spencer had to suffer the ignominy of watching hundreds of birders dipping the Little Bustard on January 2nd from within his patch boundaries. He reliably tells us that he could see the field it was in but not the area where the bird was although he does have enough area in hand to claim an extension...now there is a dilemma to chew on.
