Very quiet with barely a migrant to be seen. A Wood Sandpiper flew over in the evening and a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was seen at the fishing boats.
Three examples of the tortix moth Cydia amplana were the best of another poor overnight catch of moths.
An evening check of orthoptera produced four nymphal Sickle-bearing Bush-crickets and a few singing Tree Crickets.
A Grey Seal and two Porpoises were seen offshore.

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.
