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.

16th Mar

A new third calendar year Glaucous Gull and at least five Caspian Gulls were seen around the Point but offshore movement was limited to just four Sandwich Terns of interest. A Merlin arrived, a Firecrest was seen in a private garden and Chaffinches were passing overhead in large numbers but unseen due to the low cloud. 

The Audiomoth was recording from midnight and proved interesting. The highlight was a Little Ringed  Plover and 207 Redwing calls were counted. Skylarks were singing from 0430hrs and Peregrine Falcons were heard alarm calling on several occasions.

Ten Porpoises were feeding offshore.
