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.

18th January

A 2.25hr seawatch this morning in a fresh SE wind produced two Red-breasted Mergansers, three Fulmars, 25 Dunlin, 58 Kittiwakes west, a Sandwich Tern and good numbers of auks including 955 Razorbills. Another watch later in the day produced 14 Mediterranean Gulls west. The first-winter Caspian Gull and Glaucous Gull were both also seen during the day.
Three Woodcocks were seen in the bushes at the Long Pits.

A Grey Seal was also seen.

Also of interest, a "Friend" of the Observatory has an almost complete set of Birding World's which he would like to give away. If you are interested in receiving them email me at dungenessobs@vfast.co.uk and I will pass on the relevant details to the current owner.
