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.
The Trustees.

30th Nov

There was very little coverage of the Point today and the best bird was a dead female Pheasant which is a scarce bird fot the Bird Observatory recording area. Otherwise the only bird of note was a Long-tailed Duck which flew west at 8.48am.

On the RSPB Reserve the eight Bewick's Swans were flushed by a farmer early morning but six of them did come in to roost on the ARC Pit this evening.  Also into roost were ten Great White Egrets and 18 Little Egrets. Elsewhere on the Reserve two redhead Smew were viewable from Dennis's Hide.

At Kerton Road Triangle there were still 2+ Dartford Warblers and three Stonechats.
