Corona Virus Update

We are planning on opening the Observatory to visitors with a degree of caution, and the hides to 'Friends of DBOT' from May 17th., The relevant conditions state that the 'Rue of 6' and face coverings are also mandatory in the hides.

Please forward any Dungeness recording area records to the Warden.

25th Sept

Another windy day. There were plenty of birds feeding offshore including 100 Gannets and 200 Sandwich Terns and with a handful of skuas in attendance but there was little sign of any real movement. Five Yellow-legged Gulls came to the offerings at the fishing boats.
Very quiet on the land.

One Porpoise was seen offshore.
