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
The Trustees.

7th June

An entertaining but at times frustrating first few hours of the day with both a Bee-eater and a Serin being seen (or more often heard) on several occasions between the Observatory and the Point. Both were last seen at about 0925hrs.
A two-hour seawatch this afternoon produced a party of three Arctic Skua passing east and a party of three Eiders flying west.

Seven Porpoises were also seen.
