The purple patch for Michael John O'Mahony at Upper Rathudff continues with Teal and Lapwing added in October which ensures his lead at the top of the Inland Ireland Comparative Minileague for another month, now over 115%.
Alan Lauder mopped up Yellowhammer and Fieldfare for the year at Carrick Mountain but it was the sound of some Greenland White-fronted Geese migrating at night over his house which helped take him past the comp score target and finish on 104% by the months end. With a few more likely species still to get, Alan stands a chance at making a move on third or second place depending on how other contestants get on on the final months of the year.
