About RSPB Dungeness

A migration hotspot with miles of coastal habitats and huge skies, Dungeness is the world’s largest expanse of shingle and England’s third most biodiverse site for insects. Nearly a hundred flooded gravel pits host thousands of overwintering birds; the spring and autumn skies are full of gathering swifts and swallows, and the summer meadows are full of colourful wild flowers.
