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.

Three Mediterranean Gulls, a Little Tern and two Arctic Skuas feeding offshore were of note. A Grey Wagtail also flew over.

A Brown Hare was seen at the Point and three Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

Another attempt with moth pheromone lures attracted six Six-belted Clearwings but there was nothing of any real note in the moth traps.
