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.

20th July

Another quiet day with just a Whimbrel, two Mediterranean Gulls and a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull offshore and 85 Sand Martins passing through.

At least six Porpoises were feeding offshore and a Stoat was seen at the Long Pits.

With windier conditions overnight the moth catch was much reduced compared to the last couple of nights but still produced a True Lovers Knot and a Slender Brindle, the latter being only the fifth record for the Observatory.
