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.

24th Jan

The fog had more or less cleared by morning and left a cold but very calm day. A 1.5hr seawatch this morning produced a constant down-channel movement of 836 Red-throated Divers along with two Pintail and a couple of surprises in the form of two Egyptian Geese. The regular Great Skua was hunting offshore and check of the Patch in the afternoon found the two juvenile/first-winter Iceland Gulls still present along with two Mediterranean Gulls.
