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.

Two Jack Snipe were flushed from the large areas of floodwater at the Long Pits and a Firecrest was seen in the trapping area.
Large numbers of gulls were feeding at the Patch but were difficult to get good views of and only one first-winter Caspian Gull and two Mediterranean Gull were of note.
