Ongoing Excavation Works.

Please be aware that there are extensive ongoing excavation works around the Observatory until after Christmas. Please be very careful driving over the moat and note that parking may be difficult. We are, however, open for business and welcome anyone interested in winter birding around Dungeness.

11th January

More wind and rain for most of the day. The morning seawatch produced 203 Gannets, a Great Skua, 16 Little Gulls and 109 Kittiwakes whilst the first-winter Caspian Gull was still present and two Little Gulls were feeding at the Patch in the afternoon.

Every time I see this bird I say to myself enough is enough, I am not going to take any more pictures, but it is hard to resist when it shows so well.
