Inland Scotland - August 2015

A good month in inland Scotland sees Chris Pendlebury's sterling start to the year continue apace, adding Siskin in August to maintain top spot. It is the only patch scoring over 100%, but Alastair Forsyth is just a two pointer away from matching last years performance, while Andy Cage will be looking for a good autumn to take him over the line.

Alastair Forsyth and David Douglas are vying for top spot in the points league. Alastair's racked up a few rarities earlier in the year, and is benefitting from an impressive 1.413 points per bird taking him top despite 23 fewer species than his nearest rival.

The shores of Loch Leven proved attractive to waders in August with Little Stint and both Wood and Green Sandpiper added for David. Alastair retains his leading margin however with a couple of two pointers of his own, a calling Quail from nearby barley fields and a fishing Osprey was a garden tick! Pete Antrobus also got in on the act with an Osprey carrying fish at his Lochmaben patch.

Meanwhile Andy Cage at Kilmany bagged some extra points for Golden Eagle, Hobby and Canada Goose to continue to put pressure on his comparative score from last year.
