And I thought that the North Downs and beyond Wheatear trophy had already been decided.
I totted up the white-arses from my worthy blogs this evening to find that there has been a mid-month surge from a certain Surrey blogger...
Wanstead Birder (Jono Lethbridge) Essex 17
Non-stop Birding (Peter Alfrey) Surrey 16
Cowboy Birder (Tony Brown) Essex 7
Peter has cunningly used the 'multiple Wheatears in one image' rule to bump up his score. I now expect a certain lensman from Wanstead to hit back big time. Even the Kent boys have awoken from their slumber, but are still not bothering the leaderboard. It all comes to an end at midnight on April 30th.
It's shaping up to be a classic encounter.
