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.
The Trustees.

1st July

The new month was sworn in by a westward flurry of Manx Shearwaters, 31 in all, while 693 Gannets and the first returning Whimbrel also proceeded down the Channel. An Arctic Skua flew east in the morning and another spent some time harassing terns later in the day. 69 Common Swifts flew out to sea during the afternoon.

A Grey Seal and a minimum of three Harbour Porpoises were at sea.

Scotney's Spoonbill remained on the causeway between the eastern pits.
