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.

15th July

A quiet day with just one Manx Shearwater and three Mediterranean Gulls of note offshore. A Grey Wagtail was seen at the sewage works unit in the power station and two Yellow Wagtails flew over.

Porpoise numbers are increasing rapidly with at least 21 individuals feeding offshore this morning and a Grey Seal was also seen.

Twelve Essex Skippers and two Brown Argus whilst the moth trap produced this superb Rose Plume and only the third Observatory record.
