Tom Shields retains his lead in the Midlands comparative league despite just adding a Sanderling in May. It leaves him just short of the 100% mark. The top three remain unchanged, but a good month for Andy Sims at Boultham Mere means the he closes the gap. Andy's highlight was just his third record of Barn Owl in eight years on the 9th as it hunted over the main drain.
Ian Cowgill extends his lead at the top of the table at Lound, adding self found Pectoral Sandpiper and Temmincks Stint in May. John Hopper stays in second, with two Common Cranes his monthly highlight at Hoveringham. The Nottinghamshire domination of the points table is interrupted by Andy Mackay's third place for Eyebrook Reservoir.
