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.
A morning seawatch produced 340 Gannets, a Fulmar, 126 Kittiwakes, seven Mediterranean Gulls and 1250 auks, all west. A check of the Patch this afternoon showed the second-year Iceland Gull still present, a first-winter Caspian Gull and another five Mediterranean Gulls. A superb male Black Redstart was feeding around the sewage treatment works inside the power station and whilst I was checking the Pied Wagtail roost (135 birds) a Woodcock came in off the sea.
