Congratulations to Daz Housman who once again won the Lound 2017 Year List Competition with a total of 162 recorded Species, it was the fifth consecutive year that he has won the competition.

 

There were some notable Species that were recorded in April, the first Common Cuckoo was recorded as were the remainder of the breeding summer migrants.
