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 strong and cold NE wind continues and migration was fairly limited. A handful of migrants on the land included a Firecrest, four Willow Warblers, eight Song Thrush and three Bramblings. Over 4.5hrs of seawatching produced nine Red-breasted Mergansers, 25 Grey Plovers, a Whimbrel, 14 Mediterranean Gulls, 318 Sandwich Terns and 75 Common Terns.

At least 12 Porpoises were feeding offshore and a Brown Hare was seen on the land.
