Seaford seawatching (29-30 March 2014)

Saturday & Sunday 29th & 30th March. Enjoyable, busy seawatches with Simon, Matt & other Spalsh Point regulars, although nothing particularly out of the ordinary was seen. Both days the wind started a bit north of east and ended up a bit south of east although was never strong.
