Corona Virus Update

Due to ongoing advice about the Corona Virus we have taken the decision to close the Observatory building to visitors for the foreseeable future. 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 Google Smile when shopping online.

16th May

An Osprey came in off the sea and headed inland at 0745hrs but very little else was seen other than a Hobby at the Long Pits and a female Firecrest in the Old Lighthouse Garden.

Five Porpoises were seen offshore.

Six Painted Ladies, two Grizzled Skippers and a Holly Blue were of note among the butterflies seen.

Two Variable Damselflies were found at the Long Pits - a very scarce dragonfly at Dungeness.
