Corona Virus Update

We are very pleased to be accepting booking at the Observatory. In order to keep staff and visitors as safe as possible, we will be requesting that you take a Lateral Flow Test (provided) before you first come in. The hides will be open for 'Friends of DBOT'. However, we would request that you continue to observe safe practises and sanitiser and spray will continue to be provided to clean down the handles and closures in the hide after you have used it.

Please forward any Dungeness recording area records to the Warden.
You can still support the Obs by using Give as you Live or Amazon Smile when shopping online.

24th Apr

A nice but cool morning which gave way to fog, rain and wind in the afternoon failed to produce very much of interest.
The highlights of over six hours of seawatching were 23 Manx Shearwaters, seven Great Skuas, four Mediterranean Gulls, four Little Gulls and a Little Tern. There was little to be seen on the land with the best being a Garden Warbler and a Firecrest.

Four Porpoises were feeding offshore and a Brown Hare was seen on the road at the entrance to the Estate..
