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.

1st July

Two Manx Shearwaters flew east this morning but not a great deal else was seen other than good numbers of Gannets and four Mediterranean Gulls.

Three Porpoises were feeding offshore.

The moth traps took a fair bit of sorting through this morning with 140 species (74 "macro"'s) and notable records including an Oak Nycteoline, a Scarce Bordered Straw, Langmaid's Yellow Underwing and four Dark Swordgrass along with the pyralids Oncocera semirubella, three Ostrinia nubilalis, two Eudonia lineola and an Acrobasis suavella.
