The morning seawatch was extremely quiet but three Arctic Skuas were seen this afternoon as the wind began to increase again.
A Brown Hare and two Porpoises were seen and a Speckled Wood butterfly was the first of the year.
Another of the Dungeness plant specialties is Shepherd's Cress which is now showing at its best in large spreads across the open shingle. The regular colony of Early Purple Orchids near the Observatory is also coming to its best.
