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.

14th May

A Turtle Dove in the trapping area was about the only obvious migrant on the land. An evening seawatch produced a Sanderling, 435 Common and "commic" Terns and four Little Terns and also the most unlikely record of the day when a flock of three Black Swans flew out to the south.

Two Porpoises were feeding offshore.

Three Grizzled Skippers and a Holly Blue were seen in the trapping area and another Box Bug was also found. Three Tree Bumblebees were visiting a flowering Hawthorn.
