24 March 2014 Beachy Head Fine sunny clear cool SSE 1-2

With SE winds forecast, one could hope for a good sea-watch only to be disappointed. Bob sea-watched from 06.30-07.30 and we sea-watched from 09.30-10.35 and was a complete non-event.
Also met up with PN and MN, RB. GG and most of the Headland sites were covered and Bob covered Whitbread Hollow, Cow Gap and the Gully,with just the odd migrants were seen.
