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.

18th Sep

Another hard day in strong NE winds which continue to produce very little. There were several spells of seawatching but all they could come up with were a handful of lingering Arctic Skuas and three Mediterranean Gulls. Landbirds were very few and far between with just a Whinchat, eight Wheatears, three Tree Sparrows and a Grey Wagtail of note.

Four Porpoise and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore and a Brown Hare was seen in the Desert.
