A cold day with clear skies saw mainly small numbers of migrants on the land but seven Ring Ouzels, a Whinchat and 57 Wheatears were particularly noteworthy whilst two Egyptian Geese and a Buzzard flew over the area.
There was virtually no movement offshore but the first-winter Iceland Gull and two Mediterranean Gulls were feeding at the Patch.
A Brown Hare, a Stoat and three Porpoises were seen and butterflies included a couple of Grizzled Skippers.

Corona Virus Update
We are very pleased to be planning on opening the Observatory to visitors with numbers being limited because of shared facilities. In order to keep staff and visitors as safe as possible, we will be requesting that you take a Lateral Flow Test (provided) before you first come in. The hides will be open for 'Friends of DBOT' from May 18th. However, The 'Rule of 6' applies and face coverings are still mandatory in the hides. Sanitiser and spray will be provided to clean down the handles and closures in the hide after you have used it.
Please forward any Dungeness recording area 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.
