Corona Virus Update

Due to Coronavirus 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 difficult times.

Two Spotted Flycatchers were seen in the bushes and a Grey Wagtail flew over.

The sea was very quiet.

Three Variable Damselflies were seen at the Long Pits.

A month or so ago a colony of Common Twayblade was discovered growing under Sallows at the Long Pits and was a new species for the area. These are now in flower but are deep in shade so a flash was needed to get any sort of decent picture.
