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.

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.

Little to report in the way of birds except for at least 31 Mediterranean Gulls offshore in increasingly windy conditions.

Moths continue to provide some interest with an example of the scarce Yponomeuta irrorella along with another Acrobasis repandana and singles of Pine Hawkmoth, Beautiful Hook-tip and Oak Nycteoline of note.

Pine Hawkmoth Sphinx pinastri and Yponomeuta irrorella   Dungeness   27th June 2020
Elsewhere, the Gull-billed Tern and Black-winged Stilt continue to be seen on the ARC Pit.
