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.

Corona Virus Update
Following discussions with other Observatories and taking advice from the RSPB we are not allowed to open the hides yet to visitors as we cannot put in place the necessary protocols to keep staff and visitors safe. We will have to remain closed to overnight visitors for the foreseeable future. Day visitors are welcome to call into the garden, as long as Covid-19 protocols are observed. 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 Amazon Smile when shopping online.
Thank You for your understanding in these dificult times.
