Fourteen patches are returners so far in the Inland East Anglia Minileague and they have got off to a collective rollicking start with nine of them at 50% or better. Nick Robinson is leading the way with 69% with Jonny Rankin in second and Ben Rackshaw third. Jonny seems to have Nick Moran in his sites judging by the flagrant bating on twitter while Ben is looking to challenge on both fronts.
Ben Lewis normally scores well and his start to 2015 shows he means business as his rival, Jamie Wells has 28 points to catch up already. Nick Moran's early season form will probably spur his rivals, Alison Allen and Jonny Rankin on to more and in Jonny's case crazier efforts. Ben Rackshaw backs up his third place in the comparative league with third place in the points league. Highest placed newcomer is Ashley McElwee at Felmingham on 76 points in 8th place.
Gulls were a theme amongst the highlights as Nick Moran managed 4 Caspian Gulls at BTO HQ despite there being a sum total of zero records prior to this year. Terry Stopher managed to find a Glaucous Gull at Livermere and Nick Robinson managed a Yellow-legged Gull at UEA. Other highlights included Little Gull, Great Northern Diver, Bewicks Swans and staples of the area the ever popular Cranes.
