Sandwich and Pegwell Bay National Nature Reserve
15 July, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Agostina Campodonico talks of the wildlife of the Sandwich and Pegwell Bay areas and of the ambitious future plans for the site.
Sandwich and Pegwell Bay is a coastal reserve full of incredible wildlife. Elusive cuckoos, rare lizard orchids and harbour seals can all be found here. Though it is recognized for having the best preserved sand dune system in South East England, this reserve is probably best known as a birdwatcher’s gem. Spring and summer give passage migrants a warm welcome as they stop for the breeding season. Nightingales and Cuckoos loudly advertise their territories whilst the perfectly camouflaged eggs of Ringed Plovers go unnoticed on the shingle. Autumn and winter see the arrival of a spectacular number of birds completing epic journeys from places as far as Canada, Siberia and Southern Africa, attracted by the warmth and vast expanse of the soft, unfrozen mudflats of the bay.
To hear about the work that goes on to support this natural gem come to this Ramsgate Society Talk – all are welcome but non-members of the Ramsgate Society are asked to consider a voluntary donation of £3. Doors open at 6:30 and places must be booked in advance.
