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.

31st Jan

A very cold day with heavy frost this morning and some snow after dark.
The sea continues to provide most of the interest with five first-winter Caspian Gulls, two Yellow-legged Gulls and five Mediterranean Gulls at the Patch. For sheer numbers the most impressive feature of the day was a minimum of 11,000 Cormorants. Good numbers of auks continue to be seen.
Two Firecrest were seen in the trapping area.

A Porpoise and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.
