13th April, 2015 Beachy Head Overcast mild and clear becoming foggy by mid morning with virtually no wind

We sea-watched from 06.35-07.50 in clear almost windless conditions. Unfortunately virtually no sea-bird movement recorded. We then did a number of the sites on the Headland although sea fog rolled in making viewing difficult. Decent fall of Willow Warblers including a number of cold grey looking birds with smaller numbers of other migrants.
