6th March 2016 Beachy N2 7.30am - 7.50am

A frosty morning with a dead Barn Owl being seen on the road at the Rainbow Inn near Barcombe a sad start to the morning. Sea-watching proved deadly hindered by the continuing cold northerly airflow. Walking the Birling and Belle Tout areas produced few signs of Spring. On our way home a circling Red Kite at one point being attacked by a Common Buzzard was the highlight of the day.
