Coastal East Anglia June Minileagues

Craig Fulcher's fantastic year continues at Southwold with Manx Shearwater and Wood Sandpiper helping to extend his lead at the top. 91% at the half year is a superb score and with the autumn just around the corner the 100% marker must surely fall soon. A Red-footed Falcon for Ryan Irvine helped him leap frog Tommy Corcoran who saw what was undoubtedly the Coastal East Anglia bird of the month - a gleaming Pacific Golden Plover at the east end of Breydon which arrived on the 27th June.

No locusts required in Hemsby!

Nige Lound leads the point table at Gibraltar Point NNR, his location on the Lincolnshire side of the wash pushing the Norfolk and Suffolk sites down the table! He added a further six year ticks in the month, including a Montagu's Harrier. Robert Smith at Holme Dunes NNR keeps second despite no additions in the month but his gap to third is closing due to a Hen Harrier for James Brown.

Gary White at North Walsham scored bonus points with a self-found Bee-Eater. In true patching style however, a Tufted Duck also makes his highlights list. #Patchgold comes in all forms!

There is still plenty of time in this league, and looking at some of the sites in the chasing pack it will be an interesting autumn!
