31 Mar 2013 Beachy Head Clear cold frosty NE 1-2

Just when you think things can't get any worse at Beachy, then along comes today. We sea-watched from 07.20 (BST) to 08.20 and when we returned to the car there was still ice on the car doors, that's how cold it was. Sea-watch was useless, and we walked Birling lane and the Birling to Belle Tout loop and saw virtually nothing.
