Wales Minileagues June

Alison keeps her excellent year at Llanfair TH going with her first Cuckoo in years and her excellent comparative score highlights this as she clocks in at 126.8% - a fabulous achievement on a patch which doesnt have the diversity of some. Adam Tilt failed to add in June but remains in second place already well over the 100% barrier. Henry Cook doubled up and is now in joint third place with himself thanks to hitting both 145 points and 100% at both Great Orme and Conwy RSPB as Alun John fails to make the addition to reach the magic mark.

Red-necked Phalarope, Newport Wetlands - Mathew Meehan

A single point for Laurie Allnatt was enough to consolidate his lead at Llanelli WWT as Barry Stewart failed to add anything at Burry Inlet. Mathew Meehan at Newport Wetlands closed on the top two with 5 points in June including a female Red-necked Phalarope and brings himself into striking range for the autumn.

Away from the top of the table there were signs of the changing of seasons with a juvenile Purple Heron on David Carrington's Sker and Kenfig patch although he doesn't get the finders points. Paul Roberts managed to usher in the summer of seawatching with additions of Pomarine Skua and Storm Petrel whilst the annual arrival of summer Yellow-legged Gulls in the UK was represented on the Clwyd Estuary for Chris Jones to bag some points. Finally the UK wide eruption of Crossbills meant that Henry Cook managed to make additions at Conwy RSPB.
