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.

6th Oct

A calm and sunny morning saw more Chiffchaffs arriving but very little else in the way of grounded migrants other than 15 Blackcaps and 10 Song Thrushes. Overhead passage was rarely busy but by the end of the morning a Mistle Thrush, three Tree Sparrows, nine Grey Wagtails, two Rock Pipits, a Brambling, 30 Goldfinches,150 Siskins and 75 Reed Buntings had flown through.
Very quiet offshore with just three Arctic Skuas and three Mediterranean Gulls of interest before the weather closed in in the afternoon.

Four Porpoises were feeding offshore.

Moth trapping produced a Hummingbird Hawkmoth and a Delicate.
