Splash Point & Cuckmere Haven 3/5/15

A vast improvement on the seawatch this morning (the first ten minutes were better then yesterdays six hours) with a small movement of Skuas and Terns. The Head was covered in fog all day so I didn't fancy walking up there. The Cuckmere again wasn't too bad with a small increase in Waders, but nothing spectacular.
