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.

A handful of migrants dropped in during the day including two Firecrests, three Chiffchaffs and two Black Redstarts and the Wood Lark was seen again near the Old School House.
It was quiet for passage offshore but still plenty of gulls present with the highlight being the second calendar year Glaucous Gull again. Three Caspian Gulls and six Mediterranean Gulls were also seen.
