Data Protection

At Dungeness Bird Observatory we take security of your data very seriously. The data we hold is kept securely on a password protected device and we never pass on any information to a third party. For more information please read our Data Policy available here.

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.

1st Aug

Migrants were pretty scarce again but did include a Green Sandpiper, 513 Sand Martins,  nine Willow Warblers and seven Yellow Wagtails and the bird of the day in the form of an Osprey flying south-east and out to sea this afternoon.
Two Mediterranean Gulls flew west and two juvenile Yellow-legged Gull were seen on the beach.

A Common Seal and three Porpoises were feeding offshore.

A fairly small moth catch overnight included two Langmaid's Yellow Underwings.
