3 October 2013 Beachy Head Overcast dull with heavy rain from 10.00 am. SE 4 - 5

We just had 3 hours before heavy rain settled in at 10.00am. We met up with PN and RES at Belle Tout and between us covered all the main sites on the Headland. Generally the area was quiet although during the first hour after dawn, good numbers of diurnal migrants were moving East over the Headland. No sign of yesterdays Yellow-browed Warbler whilst we were at Belle Tout wood.
