Corona Virus Update

Due to Coronavirus we will have to remain closed to visitors for the foreseeable future. The Dungeness Estate is presently closed to non-residents so access is not available. We are still operating our monitoring programme.

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 difficult times.
The Trustees.

11th July

A windy day made for difficult conditions but around 500 Swifts were feeding over the Point for much of the day. Seawatching produced a Manx Shearwater and an Arctic Skua of note whilst a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was seen at the Patch.

Five Porpoises feeding offshore.

Yesterday, the plant Yellow-wort Blackstonia perfoliata was added to the Observatory flower list but conditions have made obtaining a decent image virtually impossible. Hopefully it will be less windy tomorrow and taking pictures will be a bit easier.
