11th April, 2016 Beachy Head Early rain overcast mild, murky at sea E 3-4

We sea-watched from 06.40-08.55 and were joined by Bob Edgar and Roger Hagger. We then had time to visit Old Trapping Area and Belle Tout wood meeting up with LP who had also covered Shooters Bottom.
Another entertaining sea-watch with again good numbers of Scoter and Sandwich Terns moving. The area was very quiet.
