19 June 2012 Beachy Head Fine warm & sunny S 1

We did a short sea-watch from 07.15-07.45 and then covered the Birling to Belle Tout area including walking the lane and field and also visited the Old Trapping Area:

Sandwich Tern 4 E
Guillemot 1 E

Common Blue 10
Small Heath 20
Large Skipper 1
Dark Green Fritillary 3
Meadow Brown 15

 I guess the car park must have been full

Looks like its time for another twitch
