Dungeness Bird Observatory

Dungeness Bird Observatory

Situated on a unique shingle bank protruding into the English Channel, Dungeness has one of south-east England's most important breeding colonies of gulls and terns. The RSPB manages the pits and pools for the large numbers of wildfowl, including Bewick's swans, gadwalls and smews, that are present in the winter. Wading birds visit the reserve on their spring and autumn migrations. The reserve is also excellent for seeing migrating birds.
