Inland Scotland Minileague - September 2016

Still awaiting the first contestant to reach 100% in the Inland Scotland Comparative Minileague at the end of September but several contestants are making progress on that front. Chris Pendlebury's only addition for the month from his multitude of patches was a Spotted Flycatcher at Stirling, new for his patch list and his office list! This takes him to 93.5% and third place there.

Graeme Garner moves into second place at Cambus, now on 94.8% while a fine duo of Black-tailed Godwit and Stonechat at Kilmany takes Andy Cage to 93% on the dot at Kilmany. 

Little movement on the Inland Scotland Points Minileague table save for Graeme Garner's Clackmannan patch which moves from fifth to fourth place thanks to a Long-tailed Duck there which leaves him on 95 species and 102 points by the end of the month. Five contestants are now over 100 points.

Some welcome additions during the month included a flyover Rock Pipit at Liberton West for Geoff Morgan and Kestrel finally made it onto Mike Hodgkin's patch year list at Penicuik Estate. 

Crested Tit is very much a specialty of the Inland Scotland Minileague and Jonathan Clarke added one to his patch year list at Croy while out for a run!

Nina O'Hanlon bows out of #PWC2016 at Kelvingrove but for very good reason, she gets to spend the rest of the autumn on Fair Isle... we won't blame you!
