After the minor riches of yesterday it was a return to few migrants on the land and just a slow trickle of birds passing east on the land. Over six hours of seawatching produced just 16 Red-breasted Mergansers, five Manx Shearwaters, 147 Whimbrel. 15 Great Skuas, 12 Arctic Skuas and 20 Little Gulls of note. The best the land could offer was just nine Lesser Whitethroats, three Bramblings and five Siskins.
At least 20 Porpoise were feeding offshore.
The first Small Coppers of the year were also seen.

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.
