Splash Point & Cuckmere Haven 10/3/17

As always the forecast SE wind gave me lots of optimism but hopes were soon dashed as the fog was thicker than I had anticipated and therefore resulted in minimal seabird passage, though our first Avocets of the spring flew east. Myself and Bob decided to head up onto the Head, but ascending into thick fog was enough to send us into a café where we enjoyed a healthy alternative. We eventually ended up down the Cuckmere where the doldrums continued with not much else about.
