A few more people have sent in updates and we have two new additions to the league, both with repectable totals, Mark Reeder, and Mark Spedding, apologies to Mark Spedding we've had his list a while and forgot to include his total, sorry Mark! These new additions take us to the brink of our half century of participants.

Iberian Chiffchaff, Potteric Carr. Mark Reeder
Yorkshires second Iberian Chiffchaff has been proving popular, although it wasn't the tonic that second placed man Dave Hursthouse hoped for as he soon discovered Andy Gibson missed the first one at Spurn in 2004 meaning they both move on one. Most of the other top boys have connected but many of the next rank have yet to tell us if they've been successful.
The Black winged stilt in North Yorks also found it's way onto a few lists including one of the top 5! whilst the Purple Heron at Welwick has been wapped off by a few of the newcomers.
Ian Smith has long been a visitor form Notts but must be a gambling man, he's put his shirt on living in Kilnsea getting him a big list, he joins the league in 26th place
The Hooded Merganser in Teeside has disgraced itself by becoming a drake! As the Fife bird was a female it now seems unlikely it was one and the same, unless it has undergone extensive gender realignment surgery! Andy Gibson will now be able to breathe a sigh of relief after spending all winter trying to discredit the record on various forums and badgering the blogmaster to remove it from here. We can't help thinking it would have be easier to just go see the bird in the first place Andy
