As the weather looks set to improve drastically over the next week or so, now is the best time to start planning a trip to Dungeness! Spring migration is in full swing and we have had sightings of swallows, wheatear, sedge warbler and garganey. The juvenile common crane is still hanging about the Denge Marsh area. Many birds are displaying and pairing up now for the spring.
Mute swan pair - Louise Kelly
Wheatear - Graham Parry
