18 September 2013 Beachy Head Early drizzle becoming overcast but dry and mild. N 1-2

We covered virtually all the main Headland sites meeting up with both RKH and PN. Just low numbers of migrants logged and no diurnal migration seen. Considering it is now the main passage time for hirundines when often thousands can be seen on the Head on a day in mid-September, we recorded only 10 Swallows all morning.
