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.

19th July

No Patch this morning so few gulls on the beach but three fledged Herring Gulls were enjoying their new surroundings with more on the Power Station almost ready to go.
The Peregrines were putting on a good performance with the male giving the juveniles a master class in hunting Feral Pigeons.
Eight Whimbrels west offshore, Yellow Wagtail plus the odd Sand Martin through in the morning.
