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.

All the interest was again along the shore line in the continuing damp and windy conditions. An excellent variety of gulls were seen with an adult Mediterranean Gull, an Iceland Gull, six Yellow-legged Gulls, five Caspian Gulls and a leucistic Herring Gull of note among thousands of individuals present.
