Coastal Ireland Minileague - June 2016

Come the end of June we see Noel Keogh top both the comparative table and the points table in the Coastal Ireland Minileague for another month.

His South Dublin Bay patch remains in first place on the comp table with 105% after a male Ruff put in an appearance at Merrion Gates where Joe Proudfoot also connected with the same bird for his patch year list (the two lads have their respective patches overlap around here). 

Further to the south, Noel's patch at Tacumshin Lake is the first to reach 200 points on the points minileague table with 143 species after an amazing month for the site where he added a plethora of rarities including Semipalmated Plover, Gull-billed Tern, Great White Egret, Cattle Egret and a #patchgold Rock Pipit! Bonus points for the month came in the form of a stunning adult breeding plumage American Golden Plover which he found while twitching the Semi-p Plover!

No other major updates received from other contestants here so another brief update for what must have been a quiet month for many.
