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.

There was a thin scattering of migrants on the land including a Garden Warbler and a Spotted Flycatcher in the moat, a Firecrest in the trapping area and eight Corn Buntings in the Broom around the Point while a Buzzard, three Yellow Wagtails and a Tree Sparrow flew over.
The sea was very quiet with just one Black Tern of note.

A Porpoise and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

Brown Argus continue to be seen in good numbers and a Holly Blue was seen in the trapping area.

The Serin continues to sing in its chosen trees at Littlestone and a Bee-eater was seen flying over Lade Pit
