13th April, 2011. Beachy Head Overcast cool, WNW 0-1

Sea-watched from 06.30-08.00, in good light conditions, but must have been one of my worst sea-watches of all time. We then walked the Headland visiting most of the birding sites, but again
very slow. Met up with PN who like us had seen very little:

Gannet 10 chiefly W
Sandwich Tern 1 E
Peregrine 1
Collared Dove 1 at Birling
Tawny Owl 1
Swallow 1
Wheatear 2
Common Whitethroat 4
Blackcap 4
Chiffchaff 3
Willow Warbler 4
Long Tailed Tit 2
Raven 1
Goldfinch 5 W
Corn Bunting 1

First Early Purple of the year.
