Inland Scotland - July 2016

No change at the top in Inland Scotland as the top three don't add any further points in July. Andy Cage at Kilmany added the most points in the comparative league with Redstart, Whinchat and Magpie all added on the last day of the month to move him onto the 90% mark.

It looks like David Douglas has top spot nailed despite no additions in the month. Alastair Forsyth added 2 points for an Osprey but had a very different highlight to his month when an Orca breached in his scope view in Clestrain Sound 10km away! He doesn't count any birds from the Sound for his PWC list, but still quite a sighting for an inland patch. An Arctic Tern at Kinneil was enough to bring up the 100 points for Chris Pendlebury this month.

Other highlights in the month were a Grasshopper Warbler and Golden Plover for Jonathan Clarke at Croy. Also, Reed Bunting at Stirling in the month was worthy of multiple exclamation marks for Chris Pendlebury. The joy of patch birding!
