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.

17th Nov

A decent enough start to the day but rapidly turning very wet and windy from mid-morning. A Little Grebe, two Gadwall, a Water Rail, a Kingfisher and two Chiffchaffs were of note at the Long Pits whilst a Fieldfare, a Brambling, 62 Goldfinches, six Siskins and three Redpolls flew over.
The sea was very quiet although a Sooty Shearwater was seen in the early afternoon.

Two Grey Seals were seen.

The Ring-necked Duck and Cattle Egret were still place and six Caspian Gulls were seen on Burrowes in the afternoon.
