6 Nov 2014 Beachy Head cloud 1/8 NW 2/3 to SW 2/3, cold at first

RDME went ringing in Whitbread Hollow again but not a lot of change from yesterday with the Cetti's being re-trapped and which now has become our latest date for Beachy. SL walked from Birling towards Crowlink and then covered the Belle Tout loop and wood. The Yellow-browed Warbler showed briefly on two occasions and a late Wheatear near Birling
