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.

More miserable weather and fewer birds offshore with just 20 Brent Geese, 640 auks and 84 Red-throated Divers of any interest. A second-winter Yellow-legged Gull was roosting at the fishing boats.

Three Porpoises were feeding offshore.

The Mediterranean Stick-insect was still alive in the Observatory garden.
