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.

Big numbers of gulls at the Patch included the regular Glaucous Gull, two adult Yellow-legged Gulls, two Little Gulls and at least four Mediterranean Gulls and 129 Brent Geese, three Shovelers and 198 Kittiwakes flew east. 
On the land, a Bewick's Swan flying over the trapping area was an unusual record whilst a Woodcock and two Snipe were also of note.
