Corona Virus Update

Due to ongoing advice about the Corona Virus we have taken the decision to close the Observatory building to visitors for the foreseeable future. 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 Google Smile when shopping online.
Thank You for your understanding

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.
