2nd November, 2016 Beachy Head Sunny, clear with some early morning frost. N 1

Another beautiful morning albeit cold at first with some frost. We covered Birling lane, Old Trapping Area, Hotel Garden, Icky Ridge and the Cliff Path, Shooters Bottom and Belle Tout wood. RE was trapping in Whitbread Hollow. Just the odd flocks of Woodpigeons moving over, the bushes very quiet with the only summer migrant seen were 2 Chiffchaffs.
