  • Why not join us for a bittern bonanza?

    During the cold months the reed beds at RSPB Dungeness provide a winter home for a handful of beautiful bitterns. Our experts know just where to look to find these elusive birds so wrap up warm and join us for a stroll round the nature trail to seek out bitterns and our other winter wildlife. We will be heading out on Sunday 25 January 2015 and Sunday 15 February 2015 leaving the Visitor centre at 10.30 am and returning around 12.30 pm. For prices and more information contact us at rspb.org.uk/Dungeness or 01797 320 588. Booking is essential and any children must be accompanied by an adult
