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.

A very cold but bright and sunny day was relatively uneventful with decent numbers of Gannets, Great Crested Grebes and Guillemots feeding offshore and the regular first-winter Caspian Gull still present the only birds of note.

I wonder if this might be the most photographed individual gull in the world?
