Inland East Anglia Minileague - June 2016

Adam Nicholls lead has been cut to 11% as he had a blank month in June with James Emerson still his closest challenger. June was a good month for Tim Phillips as he added 13% and jumped 4 places into 3rd spot. Nick Moran had a good month and holds on to 4th after finding a Honey-buzzard and twitching a Glossy Ibis at Thetford. The other side of the #beatnick challenge didn't go so well as Jonny Rankin managed a miserly zero points! There's always autumn Jonny......

Glossy Ibis, Nunnery Lakes c/o Nick Moran

There isn't much movement in the points league as the top four remain the same and Nige Lound (thanks to a Caspian Tern) swaps 4th and 5th with Nick Moran. Great White Egrets made a few more appearances as Pete Antrobus and Luke Wake added it to their lists while the other bird of note in the month was a Montagu's Harrier for Derek Gruar, found on the way to the dentist! No pain no gain! The mid-table of the league is incredibly tight with 12 points separating 9th and 24th so a good July (is there such a thing in birding??) could see major changes.
