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.

Another fairly quiet day again despite what seemed like good conditions this morning. There was just a thin scatter of migrants on the ground with 28 Chiffchaffs, three Ring Ouzels and 30 Song Thrushes being the best. Birds passing overhead included 31 Fieldfares, two Mistle Thrushes, seven Grey Wagtails, three Rock Pipits, three Bramblings, 35 Siskins and 19 Reed Buntings.
An Arctic Skua, around 20 Mediterranean Gulls and two Little Gulls were seen offshore.

Two Grey Seals were also feeding offshore.
