31st March, 2017 Beachy Head Overcast, mild becoming cool. SW 0 to 2

We joined RE and sea-watched from 06.45-07.45 but virtually no movement recorded. We covered most of the sites on the Headland joining up with RKH and RE also visited Whitbread Hollow and Cow Gap. Migrants were extremely thin on the ground.
