Corona Virus Update

We are very pleased to be planning on opening the Observatory to visitors with numbers being limited because of shared facilities. 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' from May 18th. However, The 'Rule of 6' applies and face coverings are still mandatory in the hides. Sanitiser and spray will 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.

Thank You for your understanding in these difficult times.
The Trustees.

25th Oct

Yet another disappointing day in what seemed like good conditions for a few birds to arrive. Two Ring Ouzels were about the best on offer on the land whilst birds passing overhead included 20 Skylarks, four Swallows, three Rock Pipits, three Grey Wagtails, 23 Siskins, 19 Redpolls and a party of six Crossbills.
A couple of Mediterranean Gulls were feeding offshore and 119 Brent Geese and two Eiders flew west.

Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
