30th March, 2012 Beachy Head Sunny, cool sea-haze.NE 2-3

We sea-watched from 07.20 - 08.20 and were joined by RDME. All the Headland sites were covered including the Cliff Path and RDME also covered the Hollow, Cow Gap and the Gully. With the cool NE wind  
both the sea and the area were very quiet:
