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.
Thank You for your understanding
A foggy morning produced very little of interest. Migrants on the land were fairly scarce with the first Whinchat of the spring, a Garden Warbler and a Tree Pipit of note. The sea was very slow but over five hours of watching eventually produced two Eiders, a Manx Shearwater, 26 Whimbrel, ten Arctic Skuas and two Little Terns were noted and two Hobbies also came in off the sea.
