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.

28th June

It was another very quiet day, with just two Great Spotted Woodpeckers to speak of on land and 134 Gannets passing west in one hour this morning.

The first Ruddy Darter of the year was on the wing at the Long Pits.

At least six Harbour Porpoises were offshore along with two Grey Seals and an unidentified breaching shark.

Away from the observatory, the Spoonbill was present at Scotney GPs for a second day.
