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.
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.
Little change over the last few days in the continuing strong NE wind and clear skies. The highlights of the seawatching were just two Black-throated Divers, 105 Bar-tailed Godwits, eight Mediterranean Gulls and a sole Arctic Skua. Two Yellow Wagtails on the beach were about the only migrants on the land. Three Porpoises were feeding offshore. The local Red Foxes seem to have become much tamer since the "lockdown".
