Corona Virus Update

We are very pleased to be planning on opening the Observatory to visitors with numbers being limited because of shared facilities. 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' from May 18th. However, The 'Rule of 6' applies and face coverings are still mandatory in the hides. Sanitiser and spray will 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.

Thank You for your understanding in these difficult times.
The Trustees.

5th Sep

Very little on the land with just a Garden Warbler and four Whinchats of note and a few Meadow Pipits and a Grey Wagtail flew over.
The sea was also much the same as it has been with lingering Arctic Skuas, a Great Skua and a Black Tern and a Balearic Shearwater flew east.

Six Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.

Fairly small numbers of moths were trapped overnight but they did include a Convolvulus Hawkmoth and a Scarce Bordered Straw. A Hummingbird Hawkmoth was seen in the moat and two Clouded Yellows were also seen.
