Midlands Minileague June

A brace of points for Tom Shields in June takes him to the brink of 100% after he finds a Black Tern at Holme Pierrepoint.  Rob Williams is just over 5% back but with no additions this month the gap widens. Steve Lyon also failed to add anything whilst Andy Sims surges over 90% with half the year gone still to go thanks to a patch tick Red-crested Pochard.

Little Tern, Eyebrook - Andy Mackay

The top two managed just two points between them but unfortunately for John Hopper they both went to Ian Cowgill at Lound making the gap a whopping 35 points. Is this too much to bridge already? In third Andy Mackay had a better month at Eyebrook reservoir as he added five points with Bar-tailed Godwit and Little Tern both making an appearance.

There is a bit of a drop back to the peloton but plenty of competition as you would expect in a league with 39 contestants. Relatively few scores were received for June, indicative perhaps of the doldrums but Carl Cornish added some quality with Red-necked Phalarope and Wood Sandpiper at Langford Lowfields. Rhys Dandy added a Little Stint at Cropston and Swithland and an inland Sanderling for Rhys Chivers made for some good wader records.Richard Harbird got in on the Crossbill eruption and this months #patchgold was a Kingfisher for Matthew Dick at Darley Dale.
