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.

27th June

A Serin flew over the Observatory calling twice as it went by this morning but there was very little else of interest with just a single Mediterranean Gull and 144 Swifts of any note.

Two Grey Seals and two Porpoises were feeding offshore,

Moth trapping produced a Shore Wainscot, two scarce pyralids in the form of Anania verbascalis and Nymphula nitidulata and the rare tortrix Acleris permutana.
