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.

27th Sept

A cloudy and breezy morning produced decent numbers of birds offshore but they were mostly feeding rather than moving through. Of note was a Balearic Shearwater, eight Arctic Skuas and a Great Skua. It was quiet on the land with just a couple of Firecrests, 25 Chiffchaffs and three Lesser Whitethroats whilst birds passing overhead included 150 Swallows, two Grey Wagtails and 105 Meadow Pipits

Ten Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
