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.

16th Apr

A fairly quiet day. Very little in the way of new arrivals in the bushes and not a great deal passing offshore with just a Great Northern Diver, two Arctic Skuas, three Great Skuas and a Little Tern of note being seen. At least five Mediterranean Gulls and the first-winter Iceland Gull was feeding at the Patch. A visiting male Peregrine Falcon was quickly evicted from the area by the resident male. A new rubicola male Stonechat was seen in the moat. 

At least five Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
