Corona Virus Update

We are glad to say that the Observatory is now clear and visitors are very welcome. We are very pleased to be accepting bookings at the Observatory. In order to keep staff and visitors as safe as possible, we may request that you take a Lateral Flow Test (provided) before you first come in. The hides will be open for 'Friends of DBOT'. However, we would request that you continue to observe safe practises and sanitiser and spray will continue to 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.

22nd July

The hot and dry weather continues. A three-hour seawatch this morning produced 36 Mediterranean Gulls and 72 Sandwich Terns and a couple of Whimbrel flew over.

Two Small Red-eyed Damselfies were seen at the Long Pits.

The moth traps were surprisingly quiet but a session with pheromone lures produced several Six-belted Clearwings.
