9th April, 2010.Beachy Head.

KH & RS visited a number of sites on the Headland today and met up with RDME in Shooters Bottom & Pete & Miriam in the wood. They saw during their visit the following: 1 male Yellow Hammer, 1 Willow Warbler, 1 Yellow Wagtail moved over N., 2 Whitethroats east side of the wood. Pete &Miriam had seen 2 Swallows at Birling.
RDME also walked Cow Gap & the Hollow and in addition saw 5 Blackcaps & 4 Chiffchaffs.
RHC had informed me that the pair of Ravens near Hodcombe had lost their nest due to a recent cliff fall. The pair had disappeared for 9 days but were back displaying on the 8th April. He has a pair of Stonechats in his field but the only other recent sighting was of a Blackcap.
