Corona Virus Update

Due to Coronavirus we will have to remain closed to overnight visitors for the foreseeable future. Day visitors are welcome to call into the garden, as long as Covid-19 protocols are observed. We are still operating our monitoring programme. Please think carefully about Social Distancing before approaching our Wardens. Please forward any Dungeness records to the Warden.

Thank You for your understanding in these difficult times.

10th December

Another stormy day with seawatching and gulling the only reasonable options. Nearly six hours of watching produced five Red-breasted Mergansers, four Fulmars, a Sooty Shearwater, a Snipe, two Great Skuas and singles of Little and Mediterranean Gulls of note and numbers provided by 344 Great Crested Grebes, 1010 Gannets, 53 Kittiwakes and 192 auks (mostly Guillemots). An adult and a first-winter Caspian Gull and three Yellow-legged Gulls were feeding and roosting at the Point.
