Three patch ticks in the form of Sanderling, Arctic and Great Skuas have helped Andy Rhodes reach the 100% mark and put a bit of pressure on current leader Paul Freestone. A Little Tern at Oldbury Power Station (picked out in a storm) consolidates Peter Hazlewood's position in third.

There were a number of other highlights of note in May on the south coast. A Serin was an excellent find for Andy Johnson at Sandy Point as was a Red-Rumped Swallow at Wall Common for Roger Musgrove. Kentish Plover is a harder bird to connect with these days, so one at Steart for Dick Best was certainly his May highlight. Finally a Night Heron at Loe Pool provided bonus points for Ilya Maclean.
