A damp and dreary day with very little to be seen. Two Bramblings flew over the Observatory and 15 Mediterranean Gulls were feeding offshore and roosting at the Point.
A Common Seal was seen.
The Ring-necked Duck and Cattle Egret were both showing well along the entrance track to the RSPB Reserve. Three Caspian Gulls were seen on Burrowes Pit - one of which was the Polish colour-ringed (911P) bird first seen at the fishing boats on 15th October but not seen again until today.

Corona Virus Update
Following discussions with other Observatories and taking advice from the RSPB we are not allowed to open the hides yet to visitors as we cannot put in place the necessary protocols to keep staff and visitors safe. We will have to remain closed to overnight visitors for the foreseeable future. Day visitors are welcome to call into the garden, as long as Covid-19 protocols are observed. We are still operating our monitoring programme. Please think carefully about Social Distancing before approaching our Wardens. Please forward any Dungeness 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 dificult times.
