Corona Virus Update

Due to Coronavirus we will have to remain closed to visitors for the foreseeable future. The Dungeness Estate is presently closed to non-residents so access is not available. We are still operating our monitoring programme.

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

Thank You for your understanding in these difficult times.

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.
