28 April 2014 Beachy Head 6/8 cloud clearing, NE1/2

RDME sea-watched from 06.10-07.10 and was joined by RHC. Bob also covered Birling lane and the Belle Tout wood loop, Cornish farm track. Met up briefly with PN and MN who had covered the Old Trapping Area, Shooters Bottom and Belle Tout wood. Sea-watch very quiet and again and very few migrants present in the area, although our first Garden Warbler for the year was found.
