Corona Virus Update

Due to ongoing advice about the Corona Virus we have taken the decision to close the Observatory building to visitors for the foreseeable future. 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 Google Smile when shopping online.

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.
