17th October, 2015 Beachy Head Overcast NE 1-2 increasing to 4

Not quite as much wind today and we covered all the main sites on the headland including the cliff path but not the Birling Gap loop. Increase in Ring Ouzels but otherwise much the same as yesterday and again virtually no diurnal migration other than hirundines recorded.
