In the continuing very windy conditions most of the days observations involved seawatching but even here it was fairly slow. Nine hours of watching eventually produced singles of Balearic and Manx Shearwater, 12 Fulmars, around 500 Gannets, four Arctic Skuas, 436 Sandwich Terns, 377 Common Terns and 11 Black Terns all moving west.
A check of the bushes produced just five Willow Warblers.
Six Porpoises and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.

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.
