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.

26th April

The cold north by west wind continues and even brought snow and hail with it today. Offshore, ten Whimbrel and a couple of Great Skuas flew through and what was presumably the local Tundra Bean Goose flew around again. Very quiet on the land with just a handful of Chiffchaffs and a Ring Ouzel in the bushes and a couple of Yellow Wagtails overhead.

At least seven Porpoises were feeding offshore.
