Corona Virus Update

We are very pleased to be planning on opening the Observatory to visitors with numbers being limited because of shared facilities. In order to keep staff and visitors as safe as possible, we will be requesting that you take a Lateral Flow Test (provided) before you first come in. The hides will be open for 'Friends of DBOT' from May 18th. However, The 'Rule of 6' applies and face coverings are still mandatory in the hides. Sanitiser and spray will be provided to clean down the handles and closures in the hide after you have used it.

Please forward any Dungeness recording area 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 difficult times.
The Trustees.

27th June

A day that began with mist and light showers and quickly became worse with heavy, frequently torrential, rain from 0900hrs till dark. A Mediterranean Gull was feeding at the Patch and three Black Redstarts were seen around the power station.

A Badger made its nocturnal visit to the garden arriving just after midnight.

The moth traps continue to disappoint with a pathetic total of just 25 "macro" moths from the two traps.
