Coastal East Anglia - May

Craig Fultcher has extended his lead with an impressive May with bonus points for a stunning male Red-backed Shrike and Grey-headed Wagtail as well as a host of nice spring waders including a Broad-billed Sandpiper. Away from Southwold and EA was pretty quiet in May with bonus points hard to come by, a Rough-legged Buzzard at Hemsby and Crane over Great Yarmouth the best the rest could muster. Gibraltar Point perhaps the exception as Nige Lound found both Golden Oriole and Serin on patch.

Robert Smith has seen is lead cut despite a Black Stork over his patch. Nige Lound has leap-frogged into 2nd with his fine month while Tim Hodge drops down to 5th thanks to his poor month and Craig's excellent month. Our top two from last year, Tim and James both described May as 'dire' and declared their patches as 'bird free zones'! Roll on the autumn....
