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.
You can still support the Obs by using Give as you Live or Amazon Smile when shopping online.

3rd February

A bright and less windy morning allowed a decent check of the land which produced a Jack Snipe and five Snipe in the flooded area to the east of the Long Pits and a couple of Firecrests in the bushes. There was very little passage at sea but there were at least three Mediterranean Gulls at the Patch and the first-winter Caspian and Glaucous Gulls on the beach at the fishing boats whilst 840 Great Crested Grebes were feeding offshore.
