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.

3rd July

The first juvenile Yellow-legged Gull and Mediterranean Gull arrived at the Patch but it was otherwise a quiet day.

A Grey Seal and a Porpoise were feeding offshore.

Lots of butterflies can be seen in the area with the first of a new brood of Brown Argus appearing and a few Essex Skippers among the hoards of Small Skippers. Large numbers of Large Whites were also seen.
