27th April, 2010 Beachy Head.

RDME visited most of the usual sites on the Headland and then walked into Cow Gap and the Hollow. Highlight was a Short Eared Owl which flew high over the Old Trapping Area heading north. It had probably come in off. A Nightingale was singing in Whitbred Hollow. Four pairs of Stonechats were seen also 2 Shelducks probably prospecting flew north over the lane at Birling.
In the area the following were seen: 11 Swallows, 2 Ravens, 5 Lesser Whitethroats in song, 5 Blackcaps in song also 4 Chiffchaffs, and 27 Common Whitethraots.
