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.
The Trustees.

Apart from a steady westward flow of Gannets and Kittiwakes it was fairly quiet offshore with just eight Great Skuas, an Arctic Skua, 14 Sandwich Terns, two Little Gulls and 20 Mediterranean Gulls of note in over three hours of watching.
Also pretty quiet on the land with just a Fieldfare, a Grey Wagtail, 13 Bramblings and 13 Lesser Redpolls of note passing overhead and two Dartford Warblers still present on the ground.

Four Porpoise were seen offshore.

The Dotterel was still being present with Golden Plovers at ARC.
