27 Mar 2013 Beachy Head Becoming sunny with some haze, cold NE 4

 Another cold NE windy day. We sea-watched from 06.30-0800, but other than Red-throated Divers and a single Slavonian Grebe little else was moving.
We then covered the Birling to Belle Tout loop walking the Cornish Farm Track and onto Shooters Bottom,
with just the odd migrants seen.
