The Observatory can accommodate up to 9 people in two dormitories, you need to bring your own sleeping bags and it is self-catering. As well as Birdwatchers, we welcome people from many areas of interest including Moths, Butterflies, Bugs and Beetles or just a general interest in Nature and the local environment. Please forward any Dungeness recording area records to the Warden.

4th May

The wind veered into the west and increased to gale force overnight with yet more damage to the roof of the Observatory. All the coverage was offshore but unusually most of the interesting birds moved west including 56 Manx Shearwaters and a Black-throated Diver. An Osprey came in this afternoon.

Two Porpoises were seen.
