Corona Virus Update

Due to Coronavirus 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 difficult times.

15th Nov

A pretty quiet day with just six Bullfinches in the trapping area, 12 Siskins overhead and the two regular Dartford Warblers of note on the land.
Seawatching produced just a Great Skua and four Mediterranean Gulls of interest.

A Scarce Umber was caught overnight in the moth trap and is only the third Observatory record along with a Udea ferrugalis and a ridiculously late Dark Arches.
A Small Copper was also seen.
