About RSPB Dungeness

If you haven’t been to Dungeness, nothing can quite prepare you for the landscape – mile after mile of shingle, which is wild and a little weird!

On a cold winter’s day, it is a delight to sit snug in the visitor centre and look out through a huge picture window at the large gravel pit which is home to a range of waterbirds such as Gulls, Ducks, Egrets and Grebes, and it also a great place to watch the beautiful Marsh Harriers. There is an excellent chance of seeing Bitterns and Bearded Tits in winter. In summer, Redshanks, Lapwings and Reedbed birds breed, including the majestic Marsh Harrier which are resident all year round on the reserve.

Dungeness’s position, jutting into the English Channel, makes it ideally placed to watch for migrant birds arriving or departing, with many different types of wading bird, Wheatears, Swallows, Martins and Warblers regularly seen.

RSPB Dungeness is not just all about the birds though. In the summer months, Dungeness is covered with vibrant wildflowers which attract a huge array of butterflies and moths. We are home to many species of damsel and dragonflies and rare species of solitary bees and bumblebees.
