Bolberry Down to Bolt Head

Clear night, sea fog by dawn, clearing to a hot sunny day. Fog returning mid afternoon ( vis < 100 mtrs ) with a strengthening w-sw wind.
No transport ( payback for sending the wife off to work ) but able to get a lift out to Bolberry first thing ( after reading Ivan's post wish i'd gone to East Soar first instead ). Like Rob no vis mig where i was at Bolberry because of the fog.
3 Sparrowhawks, Great Spotted Woodpecker, 15 Swallows ( poor hirundine day ), Whinchat, 29 Wheatear, 14 Blackcap, 25 Chiffchaff, 18 Goldcrest, 52 Siskins, 8 Lesser Redpoll ( scattered ), 15 Common Crossbills ( NE over Soar Mill Cove mid morning).
Nice to see this great area getting some good coverage.
