Stephen Welch is top of the Coastal Scotland comparative minileague once again and adds a single point in July. Jim Dickson moves into scond, 6% adrift but having added 5% in July including a self found Ring-billed Gull and 4 Ruff which are less than annual on his Crinan Canal patch. Chris Hill drops to third thanks to a blank month.
The Ring-billed Gull also helps Jim to consolidate his lead at the top of the points table with a ten point cushion. Not too much to overcome but it will take a good month to overhaul him immediately. Mike Hodgkin in second has a blank month while Chris Rodger takes a break from the Ashes to secure a Little Stint and third place. The only other bonus points this month would perhaps get sniffed at further south but a Great White Egret for Jonathan Clarke is a very decent record for Scotland and a welcome Dorothy for him (enough cricket puns already! - ed.).
