22nd May, 2017 Beachy Head Overcast cool SE 3-4

Met up with RE and we sea-watched from 06.05-08.05. With a SE breeze we felt there might be the possibility of an interesting late season sea-watch, but other than Common Scoters and Kittiwakes we were somewhat disappointed. We then covered Birling lane and the Old Trapping Area, and Bob covered Belle Tout wood and the Hollow area but again no sign of any late migrants.
