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.

19th Feb

A miserable day of almost constant rain. Coverage was limited but at least 80 Red-throated Divers flew west and the regular juvenile/first-winter Glaucous Gull was seen at the Patch.

Late in the day, both of the Glaucous Gulls were found on the RSPB Reserve.

A rare opportunity to get two Glaucous Gulls in one photograph although the light was very poor.
