PWC Update - September 2015

Patchwork Challenge Update ~ September 2015 ~ 

Having not submitted a new score since April, I felt that I ought to get my act together and update my spreadsheet for the September round up!

Summer and early autumn didn't go too badly for my little patch in inland Hampshire and some rather unexpected species including Tree Pipit, Grey Heron and Great Crested Grebe made their way on to my patch list.

Once autumn migration started to get underway I managed to catch up with some commoner migrants that had evaded me in the spring. These included 2 Redstart, 2 Wheatear and a Spotted Flycatcher on 31st August as well as a Pied Flycatcher that I caught while ringing on patch on 12th August.

Pied Flycatcher (Ficedula hypoleuca)

Wheatear (Oenanthe oenanthe)

As of the September update of the Next Generation Birders minileague, I am now top of the comparative league and 19th (out of 36) in the points league - see below:

In the Inland South minileague I'm not doing quite so well, but have leapt to 2nd in the comparative league and am up to 16th in the points league - see below: 

I'm pretty happy with how I'm doing and since the update I've already added 2 more species in the form of a Yellow-legged Gull in the gull roost on 3rd and 3 Teal on the pools on 16th. Hopefully I'll have a few more additions to the list before the year is out - I'm really hoping for a Yellow-browed Warbler considering the large numbers about at the moment...only time will tell!

Thanks to the folk at Patchwork Challenge for all the scoresheet updates!
