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.

5th Aug

There was another small arrival of migrants on the land with the highlights of a Nightingale and four Garden Warblers trapped and an elusive Pied Flycatcher in the moat.

Six Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

The moth catch was very much reduced last night but still produced a Gypsy Moth - only the second record for the Observatory. Two Hummingbird Hawk-moths were feeding in the Observatory garden again.
