Dungeness, Kent – Late Summer Migrants

Saturday 11th September 2021

Dungeness is one of the largest expanses of shingle in Europe and in autumn, thousands of birds pass through the area on their southerly migration to warmer climes in Africa and Southern Europe.

A visit to the RSPB reserve and the many hides is likely to produce Great Egret, Eurasian Bittern plus migrants that may include Whinchat, Northern Wheatear, Common Redstart, Lesser and Common Whitethroats, Willow Warblers and the chance of a rarity. On past tours we have been lucky to see European Honey Buzzard, Buff-breasted Sandpiper and American Black Tern.

No visit to Dungeness is complete without a seawatch and a September visit may yield Arctic & Great Skua, Arctic, Common and Black Terns plus the chance of Balearic Shearwater!
