Coastal East Anglia Minileague - June 2016

Very little movement in the comparative league as Rob Hall holds on to the lead despite adding no new birds in June. James Brown reduces the gap at the top to 2% thanks to a nice trio of Blue-winged Teal, Marsh Warbler and Bluethroat in the Lowestoft area. Scott Mayson holds on to the last podium place but Tommy Corcoran is closing in on him, mainly thanks to finding a Caspian Tern at Breydon Water. The lower positions all remain the same despite Ryan finding a male Golden Oriole at Hemsby!

While the comparative league was largely dormant in June the points table had some real movers. James Brown still hold a commanding lead thanks to the aforementioned birds but we have new challengers in the shape of Justin Zantboer (a massive 72 points since last update) and Tommy Corcoran. Justin moved from 10th to 2nd thanks to an amazing month, adding Little Bittern, Whiskered Tern, Kentish Plover (all patch ticks), Montagu's Harrier and Marsh Warbler. A truly memorable month!! The other main bird of the month yet to be mentioned made it onto two patches, bringing both Paul Eele at Titchwell and Irene Boston at Brancaster 5 points for the wonderful Great Knot. That's quite a haul of bird for June, I can't see July keeping up......
