Corona Virus Update

We are very pleased to be accepting booking at the Observatory. In order to keep staff and visitors as safe as possible, we will be requesting that you take a Lateral Flow Test (provided) before you first come in. The hides will be open for 'Friends of DBOT'. However, we would request that you continue to observe safe practises and sanitiser and spray will continue to be provided to clean down the handles and closures in the hide after you have used it.

Please forward any Dungeness recording area records to the Warden.

10th December

Another stormy day with seawatching and gulling the only reasonable options. Nearly six hours of watching produced five Red-breasted Mergansers, four Fulmars, a Sooty Shearwater, a Snipe, two Great Skuas and singles of Little and Mediterranean Gulls of note and numbers provided by 344 Great Crested Grebes, 1010 Gannets, 53 Kittiwakes and 192 auks (mostly Guillemots). An adult and a first-winter Caspian Gull and three Yellow-legged Gulls were feeding and roosting at the Point.
