27th October, 2016 Beachy Head Early fog becoming sunny and warm W 1

Early fog but when cleared became sunny and warm. Met up with RKH and we just covered Birling lane, Shooters Bottom and Belle Tout wood. RE was ringing in Whitbread Hollow. Again no diurnal migration due to early morning fog, and little to get excited about in the bushes. Bob controlled a Danish ringed Robin and trapped a party of 24 Redpolls.

Robin - a bird with Danish ring caught. It was very bright orange-red
and presumably a definitive continental bird.

Song Thrush 17 (1 Continental trapped)
Blackcap 2
Chiffchaff 9
Goldcrest 10
Lesser Redpoll 24
Corn Bunting 10
