Corona Virus Update

Due to ongoing advice about the Corona Virus we have taken the decision to close the Observatory building to visitors for the foreseeable future. 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 Google Smile when shopping online.

6th July

At least 14 Mediterranean Gulls were seen offshore but any other movement at sea was almost non-existent.
It was also very quiet on the land with a just few Swifts passing overhead of note.

Another decent catch of moths included three Sussex Emeralds, a Mottled Beauty (surprisingly scarce here - only the third Observatory record) and an Obscure Wainscot and the pyralid Dioryctria abietella
