9 September, 2013 Beachy Head Cloudy cool with heavy showers. N 0-1 to SW 3

Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse!! Birding up the lane at Birling, no migrants and got caught in a heavy shower and quickly had to retreat back to the car. Decided to try the Old Trapping Area and Hotel Garden but only a few migrants in the area. Also covered Shooters Bottom, Belle Tout and the fields around Birling Sewage Plant. Today's effort -  not worth the petrol money.
