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.

29th February

Not much happening birdwise at the Point or round the Observatory and once again there was no sign of the Glaucous or Caspian Gulls at the fishing boats. Offshore only a few Red-throated Diver and Brent Geese made any impression on the notebook. 

On the RSPB Reserve one Great White Egret was on Dengemarsh this morning. 2 Slavonian Grebe were still present on New Diggings and lastly 2 Egyptian Geese were at Boulderwall Farm.
