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.

10th Apr

The light breeze had veered into the NW overnight and induced a decent arrival of migrants on the land. As is typical at this stage of the spring the arrival was dominated by Willow Warblers with at least 180 birds seen along with 20 each of Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps and our first Whitethroat and two Redstarts of the year.
The sea was very quiet with just six Common Terns and three Mediterranean Gulls feeding offshore of note.
