27 June 2012 Beachy Head Foggy conditions

With a report of a possible Thrush Nightingale singing in Shooters Bottom on the 26th, several observers visited the area during the evening and heard a Nightingale Sp. singing quietly. RDME visited the area during the morning of the 27th and also heard it singing and although it was a fairly quiet song and possibly it was only a sub song, he felt that it was probably a Common Nightingale. As far as I am aware it has only been heard.

Some pictures which I took on the 25th.
