Coastal South Minileague - April

Paul Freestone stays top of the pops at Gwithian and becomes the first SW patcher to breach the 100% barrier (and does so in style) thanks to a Blue-headed Wagtail and 20 Purple Sandpipers. Second and third place swap over this month with Peter Hazelwood having the upper hand over Andy Rhodes. Peter's highlight was a Wood Sandpiper and Andy's best was Avocet whilst having fish and chips with his family.

65 points equates to a massive haul of migrants on his Ferrybridge patch for Joe Stockwell and he bursts the 200 point mark. Bonus points ahoy as well for a Black Kite as he opens up a 22 point lead over fellow Portland patcher Sean Foote. Sean failed to add any bonus points this time round but did manage to add Hoopoe, Crane and Wryneck. Kev Rylands down at Dawlish Warren moves up a place into third with thanks to an assortment of migrants.

Highlight of the month is probably Dan Chaney's breaching Basking Shark at Falmouth although a Storm Petrel scored more points for him. Andy Johnson managed a Wood Warbler at Sandy Point which is always a great bird to catch up with on passage.
