Corona Virus Update

Following discussions with other Observatories and taking advice from the RSPB we are not allowed to open the hides yet to visitors as we cannot put in place the necessary protocols to keep staff and visitors safe. We will have to remain closed to overnight visitors for the foreseeable future. Day visitors are welcome to call into the garden, as long as Covid-19 protocols are observed. 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 Amazon Smile when shopping online.
Thank You for your understanding in these dificult times.
The Trustees.

9th Jan

Very little change on recent days. Still lots of Guillemots offshore and good numbers of Red-throated Divers and Gannets present. A total of 3,600 Cormorants were counted coming into the roost on Burrowes as the tide rose.
A Brambling was seen at the feeding station in the trapping area and a Firecrest and a Chiffchaff were also seen.

A Brown Hare was seen in the Desert and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
