27th October, 2011 Beachy Head Overcast with light showers. SE 3 decreasing to 1-2

Met up with RDME & PE at Birling and covered the area. At Belle Tout wood, located a Pallas's Warbler which showed well at first then became very elusive, and we therefore spent 3 hours in the wood obtaining further views. RES had covered other sites on the Head.
Tuesday's Yellow Browed Warbler at Birling was now showing and JK and myself quickly made our way back up the lane and obtained some reasonable but brief views:

Grey Heron 4 high over the Top Fields.
Kestrel 1
Wren 10
Ring Ouzel 1
Blackcap 2
Pallas's Leaf Warbler 1 in Belle Tout wood
Yellow Browed Warbler 1 still present at Birling.
Chiffchaff 4
Goldcrest 10
Firecrest 8
Tree Creeper 1
Goldfinch 60 E
Linnet 130 E
