James Brown continues his dominance in the Coastal East Anglian league matching his continuing lead at the top of the point lead with a table topping performance in the comparative. Additions of Wryneck, Sooty Shearwater and Curlew Sandpiper ensured that he surpassed Rob Hall who drew a blank month in August. Both are still neck and neck for the title.

Whilst no-one has reached the 100% barrier yet, September and October will hopefully provide a few bonus pointers to push people on to the ultimate goal of PWC, to beat your own score.
In the points league, James Brown has built up what looks to be an unassailable lead. The battle for the podium spots however is much tighter with just 4 points separating Justin Zantboer and Nige Lound, both of whom had relatively quiet months.
The distraction of Birdfair was one of the reasons for a fairly quiet month on the East Anglian coastline. Other highlights included another Wryneck for Tommy Corcoran at Great Yarmouth and a Cattle Egret was a fine addition to the patchlist at Cley for Luke Nash. A seawatch at Southwold produced a Balearic Shearwater for Craig Fulcher whose highlights also included a patch record count of 7 Little Stint. Final highlights were Pied Flycatcher and Yellow-Legged Gull, both perhaps expected late summer fare at Happisburgh.
