A few more hits to report. Two for Eclectica, one at Southern Ocean Review, a shortlisting for Caroline at Bournemouth and another finalist (results TBA) for "Britbird", takes the total to 166 for the year, down on last year, but we should pass 200.
Comp wins are still stuck at 14 for this year (compared to 26 last year) but places and finals take us up to 53 comp hits for the year
