Estuarine Minileague - December 2015

Ed Keeble at Brantham adds Eider to secure the Estuarine minileague comparative table on 107%. No additions for Shaun Robson at Lytchett Bay or Gordon Hodgson at Frampton-on-Severn but they hold on to second and third places in the table. There were no other 100%ers with Russell and Emma upping sticks and decamping to Sanday they were stranded on their scores.

The top three places in the points minileague were all taken by the Lincs Wash Reserves with Paul Sullivan heading the triumvirate up with a mighty 305 points. Thats an addition of 8 points from November including a Grey Phalarope. 34 points back was John Badley on 271, 10 ahead of Anthony Bentley who finished in third place. Dave Craven was the highest placed no Frampton-ite as he registered 244 points, pipping Howard Vaughan at Rainham Marshes by two points. Dave finished with a Shag and a Water Pipit and rounds off his year on his blog. Howard added Little and Iceland Gull but narrowly missed out on the Glauc that would have seen him tie for 4th place.

Amercian Wigeon - Martin Elcoate
Away from the top of the table Toby Collett shared Paul Sullivan's Grey Phalarope to register his 35th (THIRTY-FIFTH) wader species at Frampton in 2015. This year Toby is keeping his seperate patches for the comparative table but is also entering them as a single entity to align with the other LWR patchers. Joost Brandsma finished off with a Firecrest in his garden in December which added a brace of points. Martin Elcoate managed to see a Short-eared Owl from his house in Topsham and also added the American Wigeon that has been gracing his patch. Peter Williams added Brambling on his Humber-based patch whilst Pete Antrobus added Water Rail and Hen Harrier at Tetney Lock in Lincolnshire.
