Corona Virus Update

We are very pleased to be accepting booking at the Observatory. In order to keep staff and visitors as safe as possible, we will be requesting that you take a Lateral Flow Test (provided) before you first come in. The hides will be open for 'Friends of DBOT'. However, we would request that you continue to observe safe practises and sanitiser and spray will continue to be provided to clean down the handles and closures in the hide after you have used it.

Please forward any Dungeness recording area records to the Warden.

11th Aug

Another windy day but the sea continues to disappoint with 6.5hrs of watching producing just three Balearic and one Manx Shearwater, three Mediterranean Gulls, 140 Sandwich Terns, two Little Terns, 111 Common Terns and singles of Arctic and Great Skua of note. Three Yellow-legged Gulls were seen at the fishing boats.
Not much to be seen on the land in the difficult conditions.

Single Porpoise and Grey Seal were seen offshore.
