2 October 2013 Beachy Head Overcast murky at times mild. E - SE 1-2

We didn't arrive until late morning and already a number of local birders present at Belle Tout wood as Geoff had some brief views of the Yellow-browed Warbler in the bushes by the side of the wood. Unfortunately no further sightings by the time we left. We covered most of the sites on the Headland including the Cliff Path but we didn't cover the sites around Birling. We also stopped off at Crowlink and covered the trees around the hamlet. Surprisingly, we had 35 Yellow Wagtails feeding in a cattle field at Crowlink and 12 Ring Ouzels were also recorded on the Headland.
