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.

7th March

Having returned last night from a superb two-week break in Costa Rica it was hard to get very motivated today! The best of the birds reported were three Black Redstarts and a party of five Long-tailed Tits (possibly migrants) at Westbeach Cottage. The sea was quiet.

The most significant arrival of the day was David Campbell to take up his position as Assistant Warden for the next eight months. We hope he enjoys his time here.

Finally, thanks to Jake Everitt for maintaining the website in my absence.
