It's been a busy few weeks for Yorkshire listing with Andy Gibson benefiting most adding both Fea's Petrel and Baillon's Crake at Spurn to his tally taking him to joint first place with longtime number one Dave Hursthouse. It didn't take long for Dave to strike back though as he quickly ‘insurance ticked’ the Hooded Merganser at Hemlington. However, other County listers have been less fortunate, although Steve Exley has moved up one place in the top ten having added two species at Spurn (Great Shearwater and the Baillon’s Crake). This brings him level with John Hewitt in equal sixth. The standings have been updated accordingly, please remember to send additions to your list in promptly to help keep things up to date.
