Corona Virus Update

Following discussions with other Observatories and taking advice from the RSPB we are not allowed to open the hides yet to visitors as we cannot put in place the necessary protocols to keep staff and visitors safe. We will have to remain closed to overnight visitors for the foreseeable future. Day visitors are welcome to call into the garden, as long as Covid-19 protocols are observed. We are still operating our monitoring programme. Please think carefully about Social Distancing before approaching our Wardens. Please forward any Dungeness records to the Warden.
You can still support the Obs by using Give as you Live or Amazon Smile when shopping online.
Thank You for your understanding in these dificult times.
The Trustees.

1st December

A Lapland Bunting made a brief appearance on the beach at the fishing boats and a Woodcock and four Firecrests were seen at the Long Pits. Finches continue to move through with 130 Goldfinches, 12 Siskins and a Redpoll of note. 

A couple of other pieces of interest. For those of you who generously contributed to the Acadian Flycatcher bucket fund the trustees decided to use this to purchase a digital microscope. This will help with our ongoing and wide-ranging recording of the wildlife of the Dungeness peninsula. Many thanks.
