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.

Six Mediterranean Gulls and a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull were present at the Patch. A Yellow Wagtail flew over. The recently fledged Peregrine Falcons are very obvious at the moment as they are perching on the pylons for much of the day.
