26th September, 2015 Beachy Head Fine and clear, cool at first becoming warm NE 2-3

Another very clear cool morning and we covered all the main sites on the headland. The first hour saw good numbers of hirundines, but only small numbers of other diurnal migrants, but again very few night migrants in the area.
