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.

2nd Aug

Very quiet in the continuing hot, dry and clear conditions. A Garden Warbler was the best on offer on the land, a Redshank flew over and a single Mediterranean Gull was feeding at the Patch.

A Common Seal was feeding offshore.

The highlight of the overnight moth trapping was a Tree-lichen Beauty (which unfortunately avoided the pot and photo opportunity) whilst four Hummingbird Hawk-moths were feeding in the Observatory garden.
