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.

A day of pretty miserable weather meant that nearly all the interest was offshore where 6.75hrs of seawatching produced an easterly movement which included 456 Brent Geese, three Velvet Scoters, a Red-breasted Mergansers, two Black-throated Divers, two Sooty Shearwaters (very unusual at this time of year), two Manx Shearwaters, 26 Fulmars, 198 Gannets, five Arctic and 15 Great Skuas, 441 Sandwich Terns and 21 Common Terns

Five Porpoises and a Brown Hare were also seen.
