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

6th Aug

More of the same with the hot weather continuing and just a trickle of migrants including a Garden Warbler and five Sedge Warblers passing through.
Five Mediterranean Gulls were also seen during the day.

Three Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

A Lesser Emperor dragonfly made a couple of brief visits to the southern Long Pit during the morning but on both occasions it was quickly chased off by one of the local Emperors. A Small Red-eyed Damselfly was also seen.

The moth traps were very quiet overnight but two Hummingbird Hawk-moths were still feeding in the Observatory garden during the day.
