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.

30th Sep

Another morning with decent numbers of Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps in the bushes but not much else. Overhead passage was very light but a Great White Egret over the trapping area was of note. 
The sea was very quiet in the morning but an afternoon seawatch produced a Pomarine Skua, four Arctic Skuas, two Great Skuas and 17 Mediterranean Gulls.

Seven Porpoises were feeding offshore.

Elsewhere, the Buff-breasted Sandpiper was still in the fields behind Scotney Pit and six Cattle Egrets were still being seen on the RSPB Reserve.
