Corona Virus Update

Due to Coronavirus we will have to remain closed to visitors for the foreseeable future. The Dungeness Estate is presently closed to non-residents so access is not available. We are still operating our monitoring programme.

Please forward any Dungeness records to the Warden.
You can still support the Obs by using Give as you Live or Amazon Smile when shopping online.

Thank You for your understanding in these difficult times.

20th March

Plenty of coverage today but still no sign of any Wheatears or very much else on the land for that matter with just two Woodcocks, three Firecrests and six Chiffchaffs of note. A Hen Harrier also flew out to sea in the morning.

The sea was very quiet except for large numbers of feeding gulls which included two Mediterranean Gulls and a steady trickle of Red-throated Divers and Gannets.

A Grey Seal, a Common Seal and seven Porpoises were feeding offshore and two Brown Hares were seen on the land.
