7 August 2013 Beachy Head Overcast cool with showers NNE 4-5

Cool breezy morning saw a decline in the numbers of night migrants logged although a trickle of Sand Martins coasting E and 2 female type Crossbills E, unfortunately without any wing-bars. We covered virtually all the usual sites on the Headland including the Cliff Path.
