24 April 2014 Beachy Head Overcast virtually no wind

Bob sea-watched from 06.15-08.15 and was joined for some of the time by RHC. Bob also covered Birling lane, Belle Tout wood, Whitbread Hollow, Cow Gap and the Gully.
Still a small passage of sea-birds in the calm conditions but again very few migrants seen in the area.
