A fair bit around the bushes this morning although most of it was outside the trapping area with counts of 40 Willow Warbler, 26 Lesser Whitethroats, 70 Whitethroats and a Redstart of note. There was also a bit of overhead passage with nine Tree Pipits and a Grey Wagtail this morning and a couple of Buzzards later in the day.
Seawatching was fairly unproductive today with over four hours of watching producing just two Arctic Skuas, a Great Skua and the steady westerly stream of Sandwich Terns.
Eight Porpoises and two Grey Seals were seen this morning.
A Clouded Yellow and 11 Brown Argus were also of note. A fairly late Langmaid's Yellow Underwing was trapped overnight and six Hummingbird Hawkmoths were seen during the day.

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.
