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.

28th March

A night of violent winds, causing some damage around the Point, which although they decreased still continued all day and made observations difficult but it was clear that there was very little moving offshore with just five Common Terns of note.
On the land, two Blackcaps were new for the year and two new Wheatears arrived and 50 Firecrests and 20 Chiffchaffs remained in the area.
