Corona Virus Update

Following discussions with other Observatories and taking advice from the RSPB we are not allowed to open the hides yet to visitors as we cannot put in place the necessary protocols to keep staff and visitors safe. We will have to remain closed to overnight visitors for the foreseeable future. Day visitors are welcome to call into the garden, as long as Covid-19 protocols are observed. 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.
You can still support the Obs by using Give as you Live or Amazon Smile when shopping online.
Thank You for your understanding in these dificult times.
The Trustees.

9th June

A Willow Warbler was the only obvious new migrant in the trapping area whilst three Cuckoos were displaying at the Long Pits this evening. Six Mediterranean Gulls and the white-winged gull were feeding at the Patch during the morning.

Porpoise was seen offshore and two Stoats were seen along the Observatory access track.

Two Red-eared Terrapins were basking in the sunshine at the Long Pits.

The best of the butterflies were two Brown Argus along with good numbers of Common Blues and Small Heaths and four Painted Ladies.
