10th October, 2015 Beachy Head Fine but hazy, ENE 3

We just covered the Old Trapping Area, Hotel Garden, Icky Ridge, Shooters Bottom and Belle Tout wood. Very few migrants seen in the bushes but an improvement with diurnal migration with just over 100 Siskins including a flock of 60 but the highlight was a Red Kite which drifted E over Belle Tout wood.
