The points league also has a new leader as Ben Lewis, thanks to a Firecrest (2nd patch record!), Green-winged Teal and many migrants, leaps from 4th to first. Luke Wake drops to second place despite adding 28 points during the month. Jamie Wells and his big hitting Paxton Pits patch moves into the top three as April gave him an unexpected seabird, an Arctic Skua.
Many patchers managed to find some patch ticks throughout the month, Rob Pople managed to find a Cetti's Warbler at Milton CP, Irene Boston lucked in on a fly over Raven (a great county bird!) at Dersingham Bog and Terry Stopher managed to find a Ring Ouzel at Livermere. There were also a few bits of pure patch gold as Rob Lucking had a Shelduck on his Colkirk patch, Stuart Reeves picked out a Wheatear at Mutford.
