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.

2nd June

A fresh southerly breeze today resulted in an increase in the numbers of birds offshore with 11 Eiders, 368 Common Scoters, 30 Mediterranean Gulls and three Arctic Skuas passing through of note.
Very quiet on the land.

Four Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

The overnight moth traps produced a couple of minor surprises in the form of our fourth Grass Rivulet and seventh Small Yellow Wave
