Coastal East Anglia Minileagues - October 2015

Craig Fulcher has added more than 16% in October to extend his lead with a quadruple hit of bonus points for finding Great Grey Shrike, Serin, Leach's Petrel and of course Yellow-browed Warbler. Ryan Irvine's mind bending run as documented on the blog meant he added 25% in one month including finding Red-flanked Bluetail and Olive-backed Pipit on one visit and a plethora of Great Grey Shrikes plus a Pallas's Warbler. Tommy Corcoran becomes the third patcher to cross the 100% barrier and whilst he dropped a spot this month his 11% gain is not to be sniffed at. His finds included Radde's Warbler, Great Grey Shrike and Yellow-brow whilst American Golden Plover and Lesser Yellowlegs were also handy additions.

Nige Lound managed 22 bonus points this month and added 54 points in another excellent month at Gibraltar Point. His undoubted highlight was a self-found Pallid Harrier and he also managed to dig out Richard's Pipit, Great Grey Shrike, Dusky Warbler and Rough-legged Buzzard this month. James Brown remains in second place although he has now lost touch with Nige in first. James added 28 points in October including bonus points for Pallas's Warbler and Leach's Petrel. Ryan added 62 points to move from 6th to 3rd place.

Tim Hodge also had a productive October with three Rough-legged Buzzards, three Great Grey Shrikes and a Richard's Pipit amongst the 73(!) points he accumulated in October. A spectacular effort indeed. Scott Mayson also got in on the act with a Great White Egret at Thorpeness. At Holme it was a familar story with Robert Smith accumulating Rough-legged Buzzard, Pallas's Warbler, Great Grey Shrike and Yellow-brow.
