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.

19th July

Not a great deal to report. A couple of Willow Warblers were heard in the trapping area and a few Swifts flew south but not much else was seen on the land. Four Mediterranean Gulls and two juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls were feeding offshore.

Three Porpoises and two Grey Seals were seen offshore and a Common Pipistrelle bat was feeding around the Observatory in the early hours again.

Six Small Red-eyed Damselflies were seen on the Southern Long Pit. 

The Black-winged Stilt was still present at the ARC Pit.
