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.

Despite large numbers of gulls at the Patch nothing of note could be found among them and seawatching produced just a few Red-throated Divers and auks as usual at the moment.
One Chiffchaff was seen at the Long Pits and a Grey Wagtail around the Power Station Sewage Unit was an unusual record.

A Grey Seal was hauled out on the beach but appeared to be sick.
