On the Scottish coast, Stephen Welch at Gosford Bay retains his lead in the comparative league. There is still some work to do to hit the 100% mark, but Stephen is only 12 points form the marker with the autumn months still to come.
Chris Hill and Jim Dickson make up the top three with the remaining pack having plenty of work to do in the second half of the year to match the scoring of previous years.
In the points league, it is a very close battle with Jim Dickson leading Mike Hodgkin by just one species and one point! There are also plenty of other patchers within striking distance, so the points competition should be an exciting one to watch over the coming months.
Bird of the month in the Coastal Scotland league was an unseasonal Velvet Scoter for Jonathan Clarke at Whiteness Head who also added Razorbill to his year list.
