In typical fashion, Chris Pendlebury once again resides at the top of the Inland Scotland Comparative league. He's moved his Blairdrummond patch into 1st place, thereby knocking his Dunblane patch into second position. Finishing the month with a strong 91.765% for Blairdrummond, surely that 100% milestone can only be just around the corner. Great work Chris!
Further down the table, Andy Cage at Kilmany manages to knock Graeme Garner and his Cambus patch from third place. Andy managed a further 11 species and finished on 77% for April.
Moving on to the points league, no change at the top of the table with David Douglas and his Loch Leven patch still holding off the competitors despite not adding any further species for the month. In second place, Alastair Forsyth remains as he plays catch up adding another ten species and finishing on 95 points. With only three points separating the top two, David may not be holding onto 1st place in May!
No bonus points this month but raptor highlights for April included Goshawk for Gus at SRUC Aberdeen Campus and Andy Cage at Kilmany, Iceland Gull for Graeme Garner at Cambus, Merlin for Geoff Morgan at Liberton West (4th record for ten years!), Marsh Harrier at Kinneil and Osprey at Blairdrummond for Chris Pendlebury. In addition, a number of folk reported their first records of hirundines and warblers for the year.
