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.

29th June

And so it goes on with yet more rain for much of the day and the net rides in the Trapping Area already under water. The murky conditions produced a movement of Swifts with 150 seen this morning whilst five Mediterranean Gulls were feeding offshore. A Little Ringed Plover called several times over the Observatory at 2250hrs.

Two Porpoises were feeding off the Fishing Boats.
