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.

31st March

With clear skies and light winds there was a general clear out of the grounded migrants but even so there were still 30 Firecrests, 12 Chiffchaffs and a Blackcap in the area. A Bullfinch at the Long Pits was of note (no records in 2015) as was a small passage of finches which included a Brambling and 14 Siskins. Two Buzzards were also seen during the morning.
The sea was very quiet with just two Mediterranean Gulls of interest.

Six Porpoises were feeding offshore and a Badger and a Brown Hare were seen on the land.
