29th March, 2017 Beachy Head Overcast, clear and mild. SW 4-5

What a difference a day makes!! We sea-watched from 06.25-08.00, hoping for some follow up from yesterdays bonanza, but just the opposite although a party of 7 Eiders E were nice. We then covered Shooters Bottom, Old Trapping Area, Hotel Garden, Icky Ridge and Belle Tout wood, but the only migrants seen were 2 Chiffchaffs. Perhaps a lay-in tomorrow.

Gannet 3 E
Brent Goose 40 E
Eider 7 E (3 drakes, 1 imm. drake, and 3 females)
Common Scoter 6 E
Mediterranean Gull  2 E
Sandwich Tern 1 E
Chiffchaff 2
