Inland East Anglia Minileague - August 2016

Adam Nicholls remains on 136% at Thorpe St Andrew and there is also no movement from James Emerson at Whitlingham in second position. Nick Moran clings on to third place in the comparative league with 106.8%, just 0.65% ahead of Tim Phillips. Nick adds Redstart, Yellow Wagtail and Whinchat this month whilst also having a close encounter with a juvenile Goshawk. Jim Bradley becomes the fifth person in Inland East Anglia to pass the 100% mark.

The first Little Stint in the Gipping Valley in 40 years - Ben Moyes

Ben Lewis remains at the top of the points league despite failing to advance his score. The chasing pack close in but not by much as Luke Wake at Fen Drayton adds 2 points to climb to 175 and perennial rival James Wells moves to 172 at Paxton Pits. Luke's best addition was a Green Sandpiper whilst Jamie claimed the bonus points for finding a Great White Egret as well as adding Spoonbill and Shag.

Darren Oakley-Martin who patches Willington GPs added a selection of migrants including Knot, Grey Plover, Tree Pipit and Marsh Harrier as well as getting his own slice of gentilis action. Nick Moran's second patch of Lakenheath yielded Ringed Plover and 6 Garganey this month whilst in the Gipping Valley, Ben Moyes saw the first local Little Stint for 40 years. Mike McCarthy at Taverham and Ringland had a garden flyover Greenshank. Jonny Rankin got himself back in the game with a Red Kite at Bury St Edmunds. Finally there was a Yellow-legged Gull for Jack Dawson at Ruskington and Haverholme and a Whinchat for Stuart Reeves at Mutford.
