A day of strong to gale-force easterly winds made observations on the land very difficult and the sea disappointing.
Migrants on the land included three Firecrests, 50 Chiffchaffs, a Reed Warbler, 20 Song Thrushes, six Redwings, 12 Stonechats and the one of the days highlights in the form of seven Ring Ouzels.
At sea, 265 Brent Geese flew west and four Arctic Skuas flew east and a Puffin was an unexpected sighting.
Six Porpoises were seen offshore.

Corona Virus Update
Following discussions with other Observatories and taking advice from the RSPB we are not allowed to open the hides yet to visitors as we cannot put in place the necessary protocols to keep staff and visitors safe. 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.
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 dificult times.
